She personally unloaded the trophies arriving in the Soviet Union and helped to store them in the museums. From Director she became the President of the Pushkin Museums of Art, I am loosing a friend, for 75 years she took care of the 309 Koenigs drawings. She was a strong and decisive woman who never relented in her view about the Throphee Art and who was not corrupted, till her very end. In her memory,
