In 1925, Latvia enjoyed a prosperous resurgence of life as a country that had
won independence after WWI.
Into this setting, Gerda Roze was born, the only child of two doting parents who
sent her to the finest schools to study with the best teachers. By her early teens,
Gerda was an accomplished pianist and dreamed of entering medical school. But
on her 15th birthday, her idyllic world collapsed when the Soviet Union invaded
her homeland.
From that moment forward, Gerda led many lives as she and her mother
struggled against insurmountable odds to rebuild the future she lost on that
day. The young girl who dreamed of being a doctor would eventually at the
age of 40- find her true voice in art.
Gerdas story is one of plans that arise from chaotic circumstances, determination
in the face of rock-solid roadblocks, and hope in the midst of despair.
