HISTORIC DAUGHTER OF CHANGE: CEIJA STOJKA (23 May 1933 – 28 January 2013) was an Austrian-Romani writer, painter, activist, and musician, and survivor of the Holocaust.Stojka was born in Kraubath an der Mur, Styria in 1933. Together with her mother and four of the five brothers, she survived the Holocaust and internment at Auschwitz, Ravensbruck, and Bergen-Belsen. Stojka had two children. She earned her livelihood selling fabric door-to-door, as well as rugs at markets at until 1984. Later, she lived in Vienna as a writer, painter, singer, and public lecturer.In 1992, she became the Austrian spokeswoman for the recognition of the Roma and Sinti genocide, along being a voice in the struggle against discrimination that the Roma continue to suffer throughout Europe.Stojka wrote three autobiographies. Her first, "We Live in Seclusion: The Memories of a Romni", was published in 1988 and was one of the first popular works to make public the issues concerning the Nazi persecution of the Austrian Romani people. The publication received substantial public attention for its subject matter, as well as for the fact that a woman had written it, breaking Romani convention.Stojka began painting at the age of 56 using unconventional painting implements like her fingers and toothpicks. Her work is rooted in German expressionism and folk art and depicts the death camps as well as "idyllic" pictures of family life in their painted wagon before the Holocaust.A 2014 retrospective exhibition "We Were Ashamed" described her body of work as two cycles. The first, titled "Even Death is Afraid of Auschwitz," depicts her memories of concentration camps, and is composed primarily of black and white ink drawings and comparatively few oil paintings. The second "Bright Cycle" involves colorful oil paintings of nature, landscapes, Roma wagons, dance, and family.Her art has been exhibited throughout Europe, in Japan and in the United States.Source: Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceija_StojkaPhoto by By Manfred Werner - Tsui - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=5230623 ...
