Comments for LUKA:

The song "Luka" was a hit for Suzanne Vega.

In a recent article Suzanne Vega describes how the name of the song was originally inspired by a young (not abused) boy who lived in her building, but that the name Luka is “universal. It could be a girl or boy and it could be any nationality.” A great description of a gorgeous name.

After the escape of Sobibor (October 14, 1943, WWII), the leader of the escape, Sascha Pechersky, wrote about a young Dutch girl called Luka, who was also imprisoned in the camp. She made an enormous impression on him, with respect to her intelligence and courage. (see also "From the Ashes of Sobibor" and "Sobibor The Forgotten Revolt" by Thomas Toivi Blatt).

In the subsequent movie (Escape from Sobibor, 1987), Joanna Pacula played the character of Luka.
