IN THE EAST
How My Father and a Quarter Million Polish Jews Survived the Holocaust
“It is startling to discover in a book written by a stranger answers you have always been seeking, even unconsciously, to the most fundamental personal questions.”
– Ruth Franklin, The New York Review of Books
“As she tells her father’s story, Dekel helps us to see what held these disparate groups together, both in Poland and out of it – and how what appeared to be a common plight served, in the end, to prise Jewish and Catholic Poles apart. In recovering his lost geography of suffering, she opens up new possibilities for understanding that shared past.”
– Abigail Green, The Time Literary Supplement (TLS)
Or visit your local bookshop, library, or the publisher’s web page for other places to find and buy the book.

Mikhal Dekel teaches at the CUNY Graduate Center and the City College of New York, where she is a Distinguished Professor of English, the 2021-2022 Stuart Z. Katz Professor of Humanities, and the Director of the Rifkind Center for the Humanities and Arts. Tehran Children is her third book.
