Watercolours: A Story from Auschwitz, by Lidia Ostalowska, is a many-layered work of historical reportage that draws on the real life story of Dina Gottliebova-Babbitt (1923-2009), a Czech-American artist of Jewish ancestry who was a prisoner at Auschwitz, and whose story came to light in the late nineties. Translated from the Polish by Sean Gasper Bye, the Indian edition has been published with the help of the Polish Book Institute.
