      Poland Probes Artist's Use of Holocaust Victims' Ashes


      Polish prosecutors have launched an investigation into a Swedish artist's claims that he used the ashes of Holocaust victims in his artwork, an official said Tuesday.

      The artist, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, claims he stole ashes from a crematorium at Nazi Germany's Majdanek concentration camp in Poland in 1989 then used them in one of his paintings by mixing them with water.
