Vera Lotar Shevchenko was a French pianist who studied with Alfred Cortot, married a Russian - both arrested and sent to Siberia.  She survived ( her husband did not) and later in the 60's was able to record again.  There's recordings available to listen on Youtube.  I learned about this remarkable artist after reading "The Lost Pianos of Siberia" by Sophy Roberts.   (https://www.lostpianosofsiberia.com)
