The glue she is smilingly squeezing from the bottle at the jacket has an enticing three-d quality.

The importance of Grynberg’s editorial structure is even clearer when his text is compared with two other compilations of testimonies by the ‘Tehran Children’. First, Irena Wasilewska’s Suffer Little Children was published in 1946, before the fate of the children was resolved. Wasilewska was herself deported to a penal labour-camp in the far north of the Soviet Union, and after the amnesty of 1941 became a social worker for children; the material in her ‘documentary’ text is composed from ‘letters, reminiscences and tales’ sent to her by children she knew.
The process of assimilation is traced retrospectively in We Came as Children, and this retrospection characterizes Gershon’s text throughout in both form and content. While the interviews Grynberg used were collected the same year the ‘Tehran Children’ arrived in Palestine, in Gershon’s a quarter century’s difference means that adults are recalling distant childhood selves. At the end of Gershon’s text the choral effect is at its most pronounced and narrative all but vanishes, precisely because of retrospection – and therefore in a manner unavailable to Grynberg: ¶ I am still a refugee because the scars inside me are too deep.
