Her mother is a hero of the Warsaw Uprising and of Polish noble lineage. Her father is a former public prosecutor who escaped by bicycling hundreds of miles into Romania as the Soviet Union and Germany began World War II by invading Poland, eventually fighting in France and being evacuated to England, where he ultimately met and married her mother once her final prison camp was liberated.
