One of just three of the Schindler’s list known to still exist, and the only one to have come on to the market, is up for sale. The famous document is named for Oskar Schindler who saved more than 1,200 Jews from deportation and death during the Holocaust. The brave German industrialist inspired Steven Spielberg’s 1993 movie. Schindler’s list is expected to make more than $2.4 million. In 2013 it was up for sale on eBay with a $3 million tag price.
The Moments in Time, auction house, put for sale 14 pages dated 18 April 1945 which lists names of 800 men at Schindler’s factory in Czechoslovakia. “I got the list from the nephew of Schindler’s right-hand man, Itzhak Stern,” the seller Gary Zimet told page six. Stern was played in Spielberg’s film by Ben Kingsley.
