AHMATOVA Ana Andrejevna 23. 6. 1889 - 5. 3. 1966
Ana Andrejevna Ahmatova (psevdonim Ana Ahmatova), ruska pesnica, pisateljica, literarna zgodovinarka, literarna kritičarka in prevajalka je bila ena od najbolj priznanih ruskih modernističnih pesnic. Njena dela obsegajo različne vrste pesniških del, od kratkih pesmi do pesniških ciklov, kot je tragična mojstrovina o času stalinove vlade Rekvijem (1935-40). Njen pesniški slog je izviren in se močno razlikuje od njenih sodobnikov. Stalinistična oblast je njena dela obsodila. Za razliko od mnogih drugih ustvarjalcev tega obdobja se Ahmatova ni odločila za izselitev iz Rusije temveč je ostala in postala priča grozotam režima. Ahmatova je dolga leta preživela v nenaklonjenosti režima.

Anna Akhmatova  was a Russian modernist poet, one of the most acclaimed writers in the Russian canon. Akhmatova's work ranges from short lyric poems to intricately structured cycles, such as Requiem (1935–40), her tragic masterpiece about the Stalinist terror. Her style, characterised by its economy and emotional restraint, was strikingly original and distinctive to her contemporaries. The strong and clear leading female voice struck a new chord in Russian poetry. Her writing can be said to fall into two periods – the early work (1912–25) and her later work (from around 1936 until her death), divided by a decade of reduced literary output. Her work was condemned and censored by Stalinist authorities and she is notable for choosing not to emigrate, and remaining in Russia, acting as witness to the events around her. Her perennial themes include meditations on time and memory, and the difficulties of living and writing in the shadow of Stalinism.

Prevzela je ime sestra Mary Augustina, vendar je bila že znana pod imenom "mrs. Aikenhead". To ime jo je spremljalo celo življenje. Sestre so obiskovale in pomagale revnim ljudem v ustanovah in doma. Red se je hitro širil, s tem tudi število donacij. To je omogočilo redu odpreti bolnice in šole za uboge po Irskem pa tudi v Franciji in Avstraliji.

Mary Aikenhead was the founder of the Irish Sisters of Charity. She was raised in the Church of England. Possibly inspired by her father, she became a Catholic on June 2nd 1802. The young Mary Aikenhead was very active in chartitable works and wanted to work with the poor. In 1812 Archbishop Murray of Dublin chose her to form a Sisters of Charity in Ireland. She took the name Sister Mary Augustine. However she was already well-known as "Mrs Aikenhead" from her charity work and this name stuck with her for the rest of her life. The Sisters visited and assisted poor people in institutions and in homes. The Sisters grew rapidly and with their increased numbers and donations, she was able to open hospitals and schools for the poor across Ireland.

Andersson Bibbi 11. 11. 1935 -
Švedska filmska igralka je začela igrati v gledališču Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern. Ingmar Bergman jo je odkril, ko je 17 letna nastopala v Malmoju. Najprej je igrala v majhni  toda sijajni vlogi v TV filmu
Nasmeh poletne noči (1955). Igrala je v filmih: Sedmi pečat, Divje jagode, Kriki in šepetanje.

Swedish actress Bibi Andersson received her training at the legendary Kungliga Dramatiska Teatern, then graduated to the Royal Theatre of Stockholm. While performing in a stage production in Malmo, the 17-year-old Bibi, she was discovered for films by Ingmar Bergman, who tested her in a TV soap commercial before casting her in a small but showy role in Smiles of a Summer Night (1955). Exhibiting a more capricious image than most Bergman heroines, Ms. Andersson played breezily insouciant characters in the otherwise sober-sided The seventh Seal (1957) and Wild Strawberries (1958). Her first important all-dramatic assignment was the neurotic unwed mother-to-be in Bergman's Brink of Life , for which she was honored with a Cannes Film Festival prize. Arguably her finest work under Bergman's guidance was as garrulous nurse Alma in Persona (1966), who gradually exchanges personalities with her near-comatose patient Liv Ullmann. She was also featured in one episode of Bergman's made-for-television Scenes from a Marriage (1973). On the Swedish stage, Bibi has starred in such imports as Arthur Miller's After the Fall and Edward Albee's Who`s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Andersson Harriet 14. 1. 1932 -
Švedska gledališka in filmska igralka. Kot plesalka je nastopala v švedskih mjuziklih in filmih. Slavo je dosegla v filmu Ingmarja Bergmana Sawdust and Tinsel
(1953). Igrala je še v Bergmanovih filmih: Through a Glass Darkly (1961), Cries and Whispers (1973) in Fanny and Alexander (1982).

Trained as a dancer, Harriet Andersson worked her way up from the chorus in Swedish musical revues to supporting parts in films. Impressed by her work in a previous picture, director Ingmar Bergman fashioned a vehicle specifically tailored to Harriet's talents, Summer With Monika (1953). Exuding an earthy, sexually insatiable screen image, Harriet gained international fame with her next Bergman project, Sawdust and Tinsel (1953), in which her slatternly character committed many of her worst indiscretions in the nude. Never confined to any one characterization, Harriet proved to be one of the most versatile members of the Bergman stock company: some of her finest work can be seen in Through a Glass Darkly (1961), and, as the dying Agnes, in Cries and Whispers (1973). She remained with Bergman all the way up to his last theatrical feature, Fanny and Alexander (1982), in which she was cast as Justina.
