Nicky’s Family, out July 19, shows how the “British Schindler” saved hundreds of children from Hitler’s forces, including Masters’ own mom. My grandmother’s name was Sidonia, and she lived with my grandfather Salamon in the remote mountain village of Trstena, then part of Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia). They had three little girls, among them my mother, Alice. For most of my mother’s childhood, they lived in a couple of rooms in a house with no electricity or running water.
