SURGENT, INGE

about author

Inge was born in Austria. She was in the first group of Austrian college students to be selected for a Fulbright Scholarship to study in Denver, Colorado. While in Denver, Inge met Sao Kya Seng, then a student from Burma at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. They married in 1953 and, upon their arrival in Rangoon, Inge discovered that her husband was not only a mining engineer, but also a ruling Shan prince. She then lived as a Shan princess (the Mahadevi of Hsipaw) till her hurband's assassination by the current military regime in 1962. After two years of house-arrest in Burma, Inge was allowed to leave for her native Austria. She was able to smuggle her two daughters out with her. Inge then lived in Vienna for two years before returning to Colorado, getting BA and MA degrees and becoming a school teacher. She taught in Boulder Valley Schools, married Howard Sargent, wrote a book and, together with her second husband, founded Burma Lifeline in 1996 to help refugees from Burma survive in Thailand. An international feature film, based on Inge's book "Twilight over Burma" is in the works. The military government of Burma has never acknowledged that they killed Inge's first husband in 1962.
