Trude Sojka returns to her nest

Update posted by Anita Steinitz On Feb 23, 2019

Of course, our project “Sojka returns to her nest” is not intended to bring us any money but, in a world where discrimination and violence are very latent, it aspires to bring back, through the example of Trude Sojka and her artwork, such important human values as respect, resilience and peace. We accepted the invitation of the Terezin Memorial, one of the main Holocaust museums in the world, to exhibit Trude Sojka’s sculptures and paintings because we think she must be acknowledged in her country of origin. Many of her expressionistic works of art actually pay tribute to the city of Prague and to the many Czech painters and musicians that inspired her.

The key mission of the Terezin Memorial, the only institution of its kind in the Czech Republic, is to commemorate the victims of the Nazi political and racial persecution during the occupation of the Czech lands in World War II, to promote museum, research and educational activities, and to look after the memorial sites around the world, like the Trude Sojka Cultural House, connected with the suffering and death of dozens of thousands of victims of violence,

This is an absolute must see if you have any interest in art and in humanity. An amazing place, with Trude Sojka’s house turned into a small but beautiful Art Gallery, showing some of her work. It seems to have not been ’discovered yet’, and you get the place to yourself! I got a private guided tour by Trude’s daughter Anita, which made it a very beautiful, informative and interesting visit. Any art lover, or anyone even remotely interested in art in Ecuador in the 20th century should see the Trude sojka House, her paintings, her sculptures, and hear her inspirational story. I just can not believe that it is not listed anywhere in the official guidebooks and brochures. It was a fascinating visit, a beautiful collection, and a very deeply moving story that everyone should hear. It was a privilege to be able to see it. Dejana

La iniciativa está interesante, pero la única duda que poseo es: ¿Por qué exponer la obra en un país donde no conocen a su autora? Esperaba donar por petición de un colega, pero no me interesa

I hope that all who are able will support this cause and reunite the work of Trude Sojka with their home in Terezin, Czech Republic. You have the opportunity to play your part in a monumental historic moment by sponsoring this exhibition.
