Apparently the owners of the original document, which is credited with saving more than 1,000 Jewish refugees from the Nazis concentration camps, feel that eBay is really the best place to auction off this piece of history. Again, we're talking the actual Oskar Schindler document, one of the four existing copies in the world, not the DVD of the award-winning movie.
According to reports, collectors Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin are selling the document on behalf of an unidentified collector.
"The version being auctioned on eBay has been for sale before. Zimet offered it for $2.2 million in 2010, on behalf of its then-owner, the nephew of Schindler confidant Itzhak Stern," reports The New York Post's Emily Smith, who explains that Stern typed each version of the list. The other copies of the document can be found in Holocaust museums in the U.S. and Israel.
The listing, found here, begins at $3 million. To be perfectly honest, it's a little shocking seeing that piece of history there alongside ads for 1-800 Flowers and the all the accoutrements of an eBay listing. Why not put it up for auction, or you know, a museum like the other two copies?
