An original copy of Schindler’s list, which helped spare more than a thousand Jews from the Nazis during the Second World War, is soon to go under the hammer in New York.
A Manhattan judge has given upstate memorabilia dealer Gary Zimet the green light to sell the 13-page document — one of the several original copies of the list of names compiled by German industrialist Oskar Schindler during the Holocaust.
The ruling lifted the temporary ban on a plan to sell the list for more than USD two million. Schindler’s list inspired Steven Spielberg’s film Schindler’s List in 1993, based on Thomas Keneally’s book, Schindler’s Ark.
