The last privately owned Schindler’s List, with names of nearly 800 Jewish people to be spared death in Nazi concentration camps, is likely to be sold and may fetch up to 1.5 million pounds.

According to the Sunday Express, a private buyer has agreed to pay the sum for the 14-page original document, dated April 18, 1945 — compiled by German businessman Oskar Schindler.

The list has been authenticated by Schindler expert Professor David Crowe, a historian at Elon University in North Carolina, who said it is thought to be one of eight such lists still in existence.

All the others are now owned by museums, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
