Taitz is the daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Simon and Gita, Jews from Lithuania, who met in New York at a Survivors Ball after the war. They married and had two children, Emanuel (Manny) and Sonia.
Simon stayed alive at Dachua by repairing watches for the Nazis, "who loved punctuality." Gita was about to debut as a concert pianist before the war started.
