Product Description

Review

"[A] powerful, relentless document that bears grim testimony to the suffering endured by the children and their families as they journeyed from horror to horror." --"Library Journal"


"It is the unvarnished, artless, and naive story of children who, to put it mildly, had no theory to defend." --Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, "New Republic"
"

5.0 out of 5 stars The story of the "Children of Teheran" 20 Jun. 2013
By BookHimDan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the best source for testimonials and narratives explaining the fate of the 300,000-500,000 Polish Jews who escaped the Nazis into Russia in 1939. In 1940, they were deported to slave-labor camps in Siberia where they remained for a year until the summer of 1941 when Hitler invaded Russia. At that point, they were freed, but their troubles did not end there. Hunger, desease and poverty were all that awaited them as they escaped south to Uzbekistan. Thousands died in Samarkand and Tashkent and many children were orphaned. The only savior, for some, was the Anders army which drafted some of the Jewish refugees (the most famous of them being Menachem Begin) and also helped bring almost 1000 orphaned children to Israel (then, Palestine) in early 1943 in an operation that came to be called "The Children of Teheran". Both my parents' families' stories followed the path described in this book closely, so I can attest that the testimonials in the book match their own very closely. This is an important part of Holocaust history which remains relatively unknown. Also, look for the documentary movie trailer about the children of Teheran on youtube.

5.0 out of 5 stars a moving description of a recent and little known diaspora 11 April 2000
By Roger S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a phenomenally moving book about the flight of Jewish children to the far corners of the globe in search of safety from the Holocaust. Grynberg's story is about the little known deportation of Jewish children and their families who found themselves in the Soviet Union in the early years of the war and were sent to Siberia and Central Asia for internment. Many of these people were unable to return to their homes after the war and remained in Eastern Russia or Uzbekistan. This is an excellent book.
