In 1941, her family was deported to the Lodz ghetto in Poland. Heda, her parents, and her husband, Rudolf Margolius, survived horrific conditions there, only to be taken to Auschwitz in 1944. On arrival Heda's parents perished in the gas chambers. She and Rudolf were separated, but Heda survived by being selected for work detail and eventually escaping a death march in time to participate in the Prague uprising. In Prague, she was reunited with Rudolf, who rose to deputy minister of foreign trade after the 1948 Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia. In 1952, Rudolf was arrested for conspiring against the state and convicted in the Slansky Trial, one of the most notorious Stalinist show trials of the era. In the wake of her husband's execution, Heda, who had been working as a graphic designer, and her five-year-old son, Ivan, found themselves societal outcasts. Denied employment and thrown out of her apartment, Heda eked out a living by designing book dust jackets and weaving carpets. In 1955, she married Pavel Kovaly, a philosophy lecturer. Heda turned to translation, and eventually earned a reputation as one of the country's leading literary translators. Following the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, Heda and Pavel sought a new home in the United States, where Pavel worked as a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, and Heda was a librarian at Harvard Law School. They returned to Prague in 1996. Heda died in 2010 at the age of 91")
