Dina Babbitt was an animator for Disney, but before that she was face to face with the Angel of Death
She was forced to use her talents, to save both her life and her mother’s life.
The museum at Auschwitz refuses to return her paintings.
We have the right to choose to use our talents to liberate her work.
This is an open call to creators to stand by our own, to use art to create a revolution and gain the return of seven pieces of paper to their rightful owner. This thread is for those who wish to be involved in Dina's cause.
ARTISTS FOR DINA
What would happen if the world witnessed creators from all aspects of the arts coming together to stand by and protect the rights of one artist?
It is wrong to discriminate against a person because they were a victim of a historical event.
The goal is to create a mass of art defending and supporting Dina’s rights and to give voice to the public demand for the return of Dina’s paintings. We intend to create a media spotlight revealing the museum’s long history of denying the return our colleague’s property. When the museum returns Dina’s work, we will record that event as well.
We find the negation of this artist’s human and creative rights to be an insulting and dangerous threat to the rights of artist’s and people everywhere. We do not intend to let this stand.
All proceeds will go toward Dina’s legal expenses to acquire the return of her work and more importantly, our outcry may influence the museum’s to return her work. We do not recognize the Musuem as the rightful owner of these paintings and simply want to see them return to the hands which created them. We are certain that many of you also wish to see this happen.
