While the good people at ICOM are once again investigating the moral and ethical aspects of who should be in possession of the 7 Gypsy Portraits created by Dina Babbitt at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp, we are all awaiting their findings.

While we wait, we could just twiddle our thumbs and let someone else make  decisions concerning Dina Babbitt, her humanity, and her rights as a human being. And some people will do just that. But not all.

Ed Cherniga, another of the hundreds who stand beside Dina Babbitt, has started a new blog and a new enterprise to restore Dina’s Property and Human Rights as defined by article 17.2 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (“No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.”)

Ed’s brilliant undertaking will put some contemporary artists’ art to work on one common goal –  to free Dina’s art.

The site is here:

Please visit this site, spread the word, share the ideas with your friends, and make some art that expresses YOUR point of view. Dina painted her original art to defend and protect her mother’s life.

Your original art will help restore Dina Babbitt’s Human Rights while defending and protecting your own.
