A Holocaust Refugee Odyssey


“Tehran Children is not simply another detail of the Holocaust but a matter of enduring existential, psychological and moral reflection.”
—Jonathan Brent, New York Times Book Review

“What makes Dekel’s study so valuable is not just its assiduous detailing of one family’s fate… but how it also makes us reflect on our current era, with its mass migrations of desperate people fleeing conflict and hardship.”  
—Saskia Baron, The Guardian
