I eagerly anticipate receiving my copy of your film. Thank you for sending it to me.
I am so grateful that you made this wonderful documentary about the children of Teheran. I have been looking for traces of my family for a long time, and most recently, I have been trying to discover the fate of my second cousin, Reuven Rubenstein, a 16-year-old Polish boy whose family took him to Siberia to escape the Holocaust. An Internet site described him as one of the Children of Teheran who died as a Palmach soldier at Gush Etzion in 1948.
When I was in Yad Vashem last week researching for more information about Reuven, I discovered your DVD. I watched it in the library with tears in my eyes. While Reuven's fate is very tragic, I am so glad that his story, along with those of hundreds of other children, will be remembered, and I am going to share the story with many, many people in the U.S. when I return. This is the best thing that I can do for Reuven and his family--to make sure that he will not be forgotten. I am so grateful to you and your colleagues for telling this story in such a powerful and moving way.
