Re: Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum Vs claim of Mrs Dinah Gottliebová–Babbitt

Dear Ms Murphy,

It has now been eleven weeks since your most recent, and much appreciated, actions (of March 27, 2009) aimed at resolving the question of the Auschwitz Museum’s violation of Dina Gottliebova-Babbitt’s Human Rights as defined by the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 17.2.

During that time, Mrs Babbitt’s health has not improved. She is currently being treated with morphine in response to her declining health.  As one of her supporters has presciently observed in a recent web forum, “Dina is on a timer. They [i.e. the officials involved] are not.”

I would like to ask most respectfully in light of these facts, what, if anything, ICOM’s involvement has accomplished during that same time.  May those who support Mrs Babitt’s Human Rights expect any further action or official statement from ICOM?

It would be sincerely appreciated if we could have an official statement of ICOM’s stance in this matter while Mrs Babbitt, who has been waiting patiently for thirty-six years for some sign of respect for her human rights, is still living.

Thank you.


Tim Thibeault
