|“The Beautiful Mrs. Seidenman” appears in Persian||
Iraj Hashemizadeh translated the book into Persian, which has been released by the Jahan-e Ketab Publication.
The book is about Irma Seidenman, a young Jewish widow, in the Nazi-occupied Warsaw of 1943 who possesses two attributes that can spell the difference between life and death: she has blue eyes and blond hair.
With these, and a set of false papers, she slipped out of the ghetto, passing as the wife of a Polish officer, until one day an informer spots her on the street and drags her off to the Gestapo.
“The Beautiful Mrs. Seidenman” is the story of the thirty-six hours that follow Irma’s arrest and the events that lead to her dramatic rescue as the last of Warsaw’s Jews are about to meet their deaths in the burning ghetto.
Szczypiorski (1928–2000) was a member of the Polish legislature and a Solidarity activist who was interned during the military crackdown of 1981. He was a secret police agent in the 1950s.
