Summary It is the story of one woman's struggle for survival and her rights. In Auschwitz, Babbitt [then Gottliebová] was forced to paint portraits of Joseph Mengele's Roma test subjects. The paintings survived, were found, and became the subject of an ownership dispute between her and the Auschwitz Museum that would remain unresolved until her death in 2009.-- Translator's preface.
