Free Dina’s Art

Other Opinions

The International Council of Museums (ICOM)

Having not yet had a reply from the Auschwitz Museum, it is perhaps hasty to carry this point forward at this time. However, time is of the essence and the Museum has had more than 35 years to ponder the matter.  I think it is not unfair to shake the tree a little harder and see what else falls out.

The Auschwitz Museum proudly refers to its status as a United Nations World Heritage Site. As such it is subject to the rules and regulations of whatever body governs those sites. I don’t know all of the details,  but I do know there is an International Council of Museums (ICOM) that flies the UNESCO banner.

As members of ICOM, all museums are required to abide by the International Council of Museums’ Code of Ethics for Museums.

The ICOM Code of Ethics for Museums is available from their site, in pdf format, here. You can view it now, here.

In confronting the arguments that attempt to justify keeping Dina’s work from her, this document is worth a closer look.
