  Gypsy: Nina's life history reads like Dr. Zhivago : Of mixed Czech-Russian heritage, Nina seemed forever caught in the web of Soviet and Nazi struggles for World dominance. She actually credits her chess skills with probably saving her life during the WW2, especially in German labor camps.

Nina lived the early part and most of her adult life after WW2 in Czechoslovakia. But she also spent much of her youth in Soviet Union. In chess sense, she clearly was a product of the Soviet chess programs for youth. She and her mother got caught behind enemy lines when German armies overun Russian positions.

Nina was a ladies world championship contender and later became an international arbiter. She even refereed one or two world-championship matches. She received other invitations to referee more ladies world championship matches. But, to add insult to injury, she got caught in some petty communal and chess politics and her further participation in top level chess got blocked by some Czech communist party appartchiks in Prague.
