      I think Tehran temps are hot in the summer but they get colder winters too.  But relatively speaking,  not anything close to the minus 50 degrees like Siberia .   Right now it is 52 degrees F. in Tehran . 


      I worked in Israel for 3 months in the winter months.  It was not hot everyday like I assumed.  There were cold days especially in the desert.  But I did not see snow luckily.


      Great pictures with excellent quality B7W�s .  I enjoyed them too.

      These pictures in Tehran are great.  One question tho'.....many people seem to be dressed for winter....I thought the temps were very warm in Tehran .  I realize that many would have had winter clothing when they arrived.  I love the little sheepskin coats pics.  Can someone comment?

      "Here is a photo site on Polish refugees in Teheran

      The author of this site has sent me the following information.  Most does not deal with Polish refugee history but would be of interest to history buffs and provides some background of the times and area.  Some interesting maps.  He writes:


      "The Polish Refugees page is part of our World War II history section.
      It all started when an American Soldier who served in the Persian Gulf
      Command contacted me. He sent his memoirs, newspaper articles and a
      large collection of stuff related to that time period:



      So we have also included a lot of US Army documents which are public
      domain. The only problem is they require a lot of space.

      It's probably worth a look. I discovered the Polish Refugee pictures
      along with the rest of the images from that time period."

        Hi Stefan…tho’ I am not Teresa…I was at 3 years old in Isfahan and Teheran…and my Parents told me the story of our Escape from Siberia …and so I wrote a book…do look at www.roma-king.com  and I surely would love you to promote it also…everyone so far has loved it, and although I have just published it in Dec. 2009, I am on second printing…and have been asked to present my book in Minnesota, Milwaukee and Lansing Michigan, where I will be touring in September, and at the same time seeing more of my adopted country- USA…

        But I surely would love to promote it further…so why not?...do promote both our books please…the world needs to know what happened during the WWII , and Siberia and afterwards, when we could not return to Poland…

        Do read the reviews on www.roma-king.com


        With warmest regards,

        Hi Teresa

        It's been years since we have been in touch. How are you? Is your book still in print? We would like to promote it to our members, of course.
