Seventy-five years ago, Joseph Stalin's henchmen (the NKVD) came pounding on my Polish family's door in Eastern Poland. It wasn't until 2012, after a series of serendipitous events, that I decided it was time for me to do some knocking on a few doors myself -- the doors of history.
Comedian Chelsea Joy Handler was born on February 25, 1975, in Livingston, New Jersey. The youngest of six children, Handler felt that she sometimes got lost in the crowd growing up. She thought her Mormon homemaker mother, Sylvia, and Jewish car salesman father, Melvin, were caring but flaky. Handler explained to Los Angeles magazine that "I was always quizzing my parents: 'Do you know where the school is?'" Even as a youngster, Handler showed her talent for wisecracks.
