    Helen (Kuka) Finkelstein, nee Ungar, was born in Krakow, Poland in 1933 to Alfred and Stefania Ungar. She had one older brother named Adam. Following the German invasion of Poland, the Ungar family was deported to a concentration camp in Prokocim, Poland. Helen was eventually smuggled out of the camp, and lived with two nearby families until the end of the war. Stefania Ungar and Adam Ungar were both killed in the camp, and Alfred Ungar survived a series of concentration camps and was briefly reunited with his daughter Helen after the war. At that time, Helen went to live with an aunt in Czechoslovakia for eight years and in Germany for another year and a half before immigrating to the United States, where she rejoined her father, who had settled in Los Angeles.
