‘Schindler’s list’ to sell for $2.2 million

Published

on

NEW YORK — The only privately held copy of a list that Oskar Schindler drew up of Jews to be saved from Hitler’s concentration camps is on sale for 2.2 million dollars, the seller said Monday.

“It’s the only one remaining in private hands,” said historic document sales specialist Gary Zimet, and is “arguably the most important World War II document.”

The list compiled by Schindler and the accountant Itzhak Stern — and made famous in the Hollywood movie “Schindler’s List” by Steven Spielberg — is dated April 18, 1945, and 13 pages long, Zimet told AFP.

The names of 801 men are listed along with their occupations and birthdates.

Zimet, who runs the collector’s website MomentsInTime.com, said he is selling the document on a “first come, first served” basis — rather than at auction — on behalf of an anonymous seller.

There were seven different versions of the list and only four others are known to have survived, according to Zimet. One is in the US Holocaust Museum, one at the German federal archives in Koblenz, and two others are kept at the Yad Vashem museum in Israel, he said.

According to a report from The New Yorker, when the companies were going back and forth about where the missing $45,000 went, they realized it had been routed to an account in Maryland, under the name of Hughes.

“They gave me records saying who the account belonged to,” accounts-payable manager Mary Hughes recalled in an interview. “And, sure enough, it was Woody’s.”
