Wanting her watercolors back

Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and state Museum Has 7 of Dina's watercolors. Dina wants them back but the museum says there part of history and that she cant have them. They tried to compromise and let her keep the watercolors until she died. But she wanted to own them forever or she didn't want them at all.
