"A revelatory history, a saga of flight and welcome, of death and head-down survival, a powerful narrative built for this moment. Dekel's sweeping storytelling is marked by heartbreaking restraint and historical sensitivity." -Charles King, author of Odessa and Midnight at the Pera Palace.

Tehran Children is the extraordinary true story of Polish-Jewish child refugees--including the author's father--who escaped the Nazis and found refuge in Iran.

Book sales will be handled by Eight Cousins.
