Dina Gottliebova Babbitt (aka Dinah), is the artist who was forced to paint and draw the horrible experiments of the Auschwitz doctor known as the Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele. Mengele also commanded her to paint the watercolor portraits of several Gypsies, who were other Auschwitz inmates, in order to capture what he called gypsy skin coloration better than he could do it with his camera and the film of that time. Once the portraits were complete, to Dina's horror, Mengele sent the Gypsies to their death.
According to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum's website, seven of the gypsy portraits were discovered after World War II outside the Auschwitz Death Camp, from which they were removed without legal permission, in the early 1970's and sold to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum by people who apparently did not know that the artist, Dina Babbitt, was still alive and living in California. (If this information has been removed from the Museum's website, I still have the save webpage. Contact me to see it on Museum letterhead.) The Museum asked Dina to come to Auschwitz in 1973 to identify her work. However, after she did, the Museum would not allow her to take her paintings home with her. The Museum's refusal to release the paintings to Dina began her re-incarceration as a spiritual hostage of the Auschwitz Death Camp.
The drawings present a problem for the "Holocaust Industry". They document that the population of the Nazi slave-labor camps consisted of many different races. This undermines the claim that any one particular group is deserving of special treatment above any others.
