Tehran Children is the true story of Polish-Jewish child refugees who escaped the Nazis and found refuge in Iran. Mikhal Dekel, the daughter of one of these children, spent eight years extensively researching and traveling around the world to write a far-reaching account of Jews who found asylum in Muslim lands. Blending memoir with historical research, Dekel reveals a new Holocaust narrative: “one whose central image is not the concentration camp or the secret hiding place in the attic, but something much more disjointed: the constant fleeing from place to place, the shifting of allegiances and identity.”

In this program, Dekel will be joined by Gal Beckerman, journalist and award-winning author of When They Come for Us We’ll Be Gone, for a discussion of the book and this little-known history.
