The Real Schindler’s List is Now on eBay for Sale

shinlers list ebay


If you have money in your pocket to burn and love history, this is the auction for you.   This is the original Shindler’s list, not the movie.   This thing is starting off at 3 million, you can see the actual auction listing here.   It’s one of 4 copies left known and it’s an original.

This copy of the list, which is responsible for saving over a thousand Jews during the Holocaust, comes from the family of Itzhak Stern – Oskar Schindler’s accountant and friend.

If you’re not aware of the story or need a refresher here is some info about it.

Oskar Schindler is credited with saving the lives of at least 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them at his factories, which made enamelware and ammunitions. At first, his connections helped him protect his workers from internment in Nazi concentration camps. But after a while, he could only maintain their safety through bribes. By the end of the war, Schindler had spent most of his money on bribes to protect the Schindlerjuden.

In 1944, with the help of a Jewish ghetto police officer, his secretary Mietek Pemper, and Stern, Schindler compiled the famous list, which contained 1,200 names of workers he would transport with him to a new factory. The list would ultimately save them from near-certain death.

I remember the story from High School and how powerful that message is, what a great man and story to go along with it.
