The rescue of the Children of Teheran from the clutches of the Final Solution in Europe stands out as one of the key stories of rescue in the history of modern Zionism. In the winter of 1943, as the war raged in Europe, the Jewish settlement in pre-state Israel was overwhelmed with emotions at the sight of the first refugees of the war: 800 orphaned Jewish children from occupied Poland were rescued in an audacious operation and brought to pre-state Israel in a grueling journey from Poland to Tehran, through the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal. In this film, the "Children" reconstruct their tortuous journey.
The event is admission free - everyone is invited! Payment for the screening and lecture is optional, each one pays according to their will and ability, and is intended to support the filmmaker and help us bring the film to as many viewers as possible.
