Polish in Iran (Persia)

From 1942 until the end of the war there was a population of Polish migrants in Iran. As Iran is outside the remit of Tracing Your European Ancestors I have mentioned it briefly in the book, but wish to share here with you the fascinating details that I have come across during the course of my research.

  • Iranian Documentary, “The Lost Requiem” produced by Khosrow Sinai in 1983. This film took twelve years for the producer to make as he researched, filmed and interviewed as many people as he could locate from the former Polish community which spent the years from 1942 in Iran. The film has been made available by the producer and can be found at YouTube.
