Schindler's List Listed on Ebay

shindlerlist.jpgAn original, 14-page typewritten list of the Jewish people Oskar Schindler saved during the Holocaust is for sale on Ebay, with a starting bid of $3 million. The paper, dated April 18, 1945, contains the names of more than 800 men. The List was the subject of the 1982 Booker Prize-winning book by Thomas Keneally and the 1993 Academy Award-winning film. According to the auction listing, the document comes from the family of Itzhak Stern, Schindler's accountant (played in the movie by Ben Kingsley). Only three other such documents are known, all in institutional collections.

The anonymous seller is based in Israel. Eric Gazin of Auction Cause and Gary Zimet of Moments in Time are handling the auction.

Bidding ends on July 28. Interested bidders must be pre-approved.
