She was interned in the Lida ghetto in Belarus, then escaped with her parents and joined the nearby partisans in the Lipiczany forest.

After retiring, she became an artist and writer depicting the plight of the Jews during the Holocaust.

She has had some 25 solo exhibits. Three of her works are part of the permanent art collection at Yad Vashem, and one is included in a book published by the museum in 2010- Virtues of Memory: Six Decades of Survivors' Creativity.Margaret "Gigi" Lincoln, Ph.D. Gigi is the District Librarian and National Honor Society Advisor at Lakeview High School in Battle Creek, MI.
