Short biography
From Publishers Weekly: Raised Roman Catholic in a Michigan suburb, Helen Fremont knew that her parents had been in concentration camps. Her Polish-born mother Batya was interned in fascist Italy, and her Hungarian-born father Kovik was sentenced to life in the Soviet gulag. But her parents refused to talk about their past, and they never let on that they had been born Jews. As adults, Fremont, a Boston lawyer and public defender, and her sister, Lara, a psychiatrist, pieced together their parents' hidden past by examining archives and tracking down Holocaust survivors. The resulting book, After Long Silence: A Memoir, was published in 1999.
