Dina Gottliebova Babbitt is fighting to regain ownership of seven portraits she painted, which are in the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
In 1944, the notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele ordered Dina Gottliebova Babbitt to paint portraits of Gypsy prisoners at Poland's Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
Mengele, known as the "Angel of Death," wanted portraits of Gypsies, or Roma people, to document what the Nazis saw as their "degenerate" racial characteristics. Photographs, which he had used previously, lacked color.
Now 83, Babbitt is trying to recover seven of the original works, which are in the museum at the site of the camp.
