“Schindler´s List” is being auctioned off on eBay

Redacción

The anonymous owner, who lives in Israel, received the list from Stern´s nephew, according to Gazin. It is not clear why the owner is selling the list.

Gazin said the auction is only open to pre-qualified bidders because he needs to vet that they actually have $3 million to spend. He has already received several inquiries, he said, but declined to provide the identities of those who were interested.

The one being offered for sale on eBay tonight is 14 onion-skin pages long. The date April 18, 1945, is written in pencil on the first page. It lists 801 male names.

Schindler´s List became a household name in 1993 when Steven Spielberg directed the Academy Award-winning classic movie of the same name.

The major significance of this list "goes beyond the inaccuracies" depicted to a certain degree in novels and movies about Schindler, such as the belief that there is only one list, according to Peter Black, senior historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
