Zoia Ceausescu, the daughter of Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu, was subjected to pressure her entire life. From the outset, her destiny was in the hands of her parents, who wanted to control her and “arrange” her life. Even her name was politically motivated. Although he would later become an anti-Russian patriot, Nicolae Ceausescu named her Zoia in honour of the Soviet heroine Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya, a partisan executed by the Germans. Born on 1st March 1949, Zoia entered adolescence just as her father was fighting to gain control over the Romanian Communist Party and the country. More about Ceausescu’s daughter
