Kati Marton: Richard Holbrooke's widow is a mom and an accomplished author

Richard Holbrooke’s death yesterday shined an unexpected spotlight on his widow, Kati Marton, an accomplished author and women’s rights advocate who had been married to the diplomat for 15 years. Her husband was by all accounts an extraordinary man who helped broker the accords to end the war in Bosnia, and today he’s being mourned worldwide after his aorta ruptured and eventually killed him. His wife is just as impressive. Here’s five things about Kati Marton, Holbrook’s widow and a mother of two.

1. She has two children by her late second husband, Peter Jennings.

2. She was born in Hungary and was schooled in the U.S. and in Paris.

3. Her grandparents were killed at Auschwitz.

4. She is a former ABC News and NPR employee who chaired the International Women’s Health Coalition.

5. In the book “Enemies of the People,” she investigated how parents, journalists Ilona and Endre Marton, survived World War II and why they were jailed by the Soviets.
