The Lost Requiem

“This is just one of many such occasions that I have come with flowers in my hands to the Christian cemetery in Tehran...”

During WWII, Iran hosted 116,000-300,000 Jewish and Catholic refugees from Poland. Many stayed in cities such as Isfahan and came to be known as “The Children of Isfahan”.

In the 1970s, Iranian filmmaker Khosrow Sinai dedicated 12 years of his life to document the stories of the refugees. 


The result is a film called “The Lost Requiem”.
