Most of us have seen or at least heard of the famous biopic Schindler’s List in which Czech businessman Oskar Schindler used just one list to save the lives of more than 1,000 Jews during World War Two. Unlike the movie, in reality, many copies of the list were made. But today, only a handful of the original copies made exist (can be seen at museums in the US and Israel), with only one being in private custody. Now, this privately owned copy is all set to go on sale for a cool asking price of $2.2million! The list compiled by Schindler along with Itzhak Stern, the great violinist and humanitarian, is dated April 18, 1945, and said to be thirteen pages long with 801 names on it. The legendary list is being offered for sale on a first-come, first-serve basis by New York-based collector Gary Zimet.
This document’s historical significance is sure to help this list find a buyer in no time at all.
