Tehran Children

mikhal-tehran-children-map-400x320Tehran Children is my current project, the search for the story of a group of Polish-Jewish children who fled Nazi-occupied Poland via Russia, Uzbekistan, Iran, ultimately reaching British-controlled Palestine.

Here is an excerpt from an early version of this work which appeared in the  anthology The Global and the Intimate: Feminism in our TIme edited by Geraldine Pratt and Victoria Rosner and published by Columbia University Press in 2012.

A website in progress about the book, including archive materials, is available at Tehran Children
