The Tehran Children: To Whom Does History Belong?
Lecture by Dr. Mikhal Dekel (Director of the Rifkind Center for Humanities and the Arts at the
CUNY Graduate Center and the City College of New York)

Monday, April 24, 2023 7:00 PM 
University at Albany Uptown Campus Campus Center Boardroom (second floor)

In her lecture, Dr. Dekel will tell the story of her father and the odyssey from Poland to Iran at the core of his childhood—an experience which he never talked about, though it informed every aspect of his being. His wartime odyssey was also part of a larger chapter in the history of World War II, that of a quarter million Polish-Jewish refugees in Central Asia and the Middle East. The fact that most Polish Jews who survived the war had followed this path has been until now virtually unknown.
