According to an announcement by A&E, Gene Simmons Family Jewels will return with a one hour special that will delve into Gene Simmons’s personal life and past. Gene (whose real name is Chaim Witz) is forced to face the realities of his mother’s past when he visits the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Though the show is known for its ‘rock star’ approach to life, the premiere episode promises to be an open look at the cruelty Gene Simmons mother, Flóra Klein, faced throughout the Holocaust. Gene Simmons mother and his uncle (Larry Klein) were the only members of his family to survive the brutality of the Nazi concentration camps.
Gene Simmons was born in Tirat Carmel, Haifa, Israel and immigrated with his mother to the United States when he was eight years old. The family settled in the Jackson Heights section of Queens, New York.
The premiere episode will be the first time Gene Simmons has gone public with an intimate look at his family’s history and survival of Nazi concentration camps.
