Original Schindlers list on eBay for $3 million-plus

The original list of names of 801 Jews rescued by German industrialist Oskar Schindler is being auctioned off on eBay.

The 14 pages containing the original Schindler’s list was put on eBay July 19 by California collectors Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin, who set the reserve price at $3 million but are hoping to sell it for $5 million.

The date April 18, 1945 is written in pencil on the first page. Only male names appear on the German-language list, along with each person’s date of birth and profession.

The list was named for Schindler, a German businessman credited with saving more than 1,000 Jews from the Nazis by deeming them essential workers for his enamel works factories.

His story reached worldwide attention after the release of the 1993 feature film “Schindler’s List,” which was directed by Steven Spielberg and won the Academy Award for best picture.

Of the seven original versions of the list, only four are known to exist — including two at Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Museum, and one at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, according to the New York Post.

According to the eBay listing, this is the only one ever put on the market. It comes from the family of Itzhak Stern, Schindler’s accountant (played by Ben Kingsley in the film).

Bidding is set to close July 28. — jta
