One of the most important documents from World War Two is up for sale. According to the French news agency AFP, the last privately-owned list made by Oskar Schindler of Jews to be saved from Nazi concentration camps has an asking price of two-point-two-million dollars. The 13-page list is dated April 18th, 1945 and was compiled by Schindler and his assistant Itzhak Stern. It includes the names, occupations and birthdays of 801 men. The list is being sold on a first-come-first-served basis through historic document sales specialist Gary Zimet, who is working on behalf of an anonymous seller. Zimet claims there were seven original versions, but only four remain. The other three lists are in the U.S. Holocaust Museum, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel, and in German archives in Koblenz.
