Jewish Holocaust / Genocide Rescuers

"Oskar Schindler photographed in 1968." (Associated Press)
Original Copy of Schindler's List To Be Sold at Auction

The Telegraph, December 26, 2010
"A judge in New York has decided to allow a memorabilia dealer to sell what he says is an original copy of Schindler's list.
Oskar Schindler. The 13-page document is said to be one of several original copies of the list of names compiled by German industrialist Oskar Schindler as he saved more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust. A ruling by Supreme Court Justice Louis York lifted a temporary ban on a plan to sell the list for more than $2 million (£1.3 million.) An heir to Schindler's widow had sought to block the sale. Schindler's efforts to save the lives of Jewish refugees was the subject of Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning film Schindler's List in 1993, which was based on Thomas Keneally's book Schindler's Ark."
