Comics Legends Document Holocaust Artist’s Struggle


Art, General Culture

“Neal Adams, Joe Kubert and Stan Lee have joined forces with a Holocaust expert to craft a comic that document the struggle of an Auschwitz survivor who painted watercolors to spare her mother’s life in the Nazi camp. The artist, Dina Gottliebova Babbitt, 85, created a Disney mural in the children’s barracks at Auschwitz before being tapped by Dr. Josef Mengele to paint portraits of Gypsy prisoners. Babbitt cut a deal with the Nazi madman that spared her mother’s life in exchange for the paintings.” (source) You can see the comic as a pdf here or as separate web pages here.
