First page of the list dated April 18, 1945

Oskar Schindler (28 April 1908 – 9 October 1974)

(Fox News) – No, not a DVD of the 1993 Oscar-winning Steven Spielberg
film, but one of the original Schindler’s lists, the only one ever to go on the
open market, will be publicly auctioned tonight on the popular shopping Web 
site eBay.The reserve price is an eye-popping $3 million. But its sellers, 
California collectors Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin, are hoping it will go for as
high as $5 million.

The “list” was named for Oskar Schindler, a businessman from Germany
who is credited with saving more than 1,000 Jewish refugees from the
Nazis by deeming them essential workers for his enamel-works factories.

Of the seven original versions of the list, only four are known to still exist,
including two in Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Museum, and
one in the US Holocaust Museum in Washington. The one being offered
for sale on eBay tonight is 14 onion-skin pages long.
