Helen was two years old when World War II began. Her family fled to the Soviet Union, where her mother had family. They were sent to Siberia; after a year, they escaped and after being on a train for 3 months, arrived in Uzbekistan. Her father, Kissel, was separated from Helen when he was conscripted into the Soviet army, and she did not see him again until after the war.
