Tehran Children: A Holocaust Refugee Odyssey covers an unusual history: that of Jewish children evacuated to Iran during World War II. It was 2007 when Dekel told an interested colleague that her father was one of a thousand such children in Tehran during the war. She knew little more and didn't even consider him the usual Holocaust survivor, but her exploration of his life resulted in ten years of research into the Tehran Children and others who were deported from Poland to settlements in the Soviet Union and its many republics. No Holocaust history collection should be without this exploration of a little-known aspect of Holocaust relocation history.
