‘Schindler’s List’ Documents Sold at New Hampshire Auction

Documents belonging to Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist who saved more than 1,000 Jewish workers from being sent to concentration camps during the Holocaust, were sold at a New Hampshire auction for more than $122,000 on Thursday.

One of the documents is a letter signed by Schindler, the man whose story was immortalized on screen in Steven Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List.” An anonymous buyer bought the letter for $59,135, said RR Auction of Amherst, New Hampshire.

“These documents are especially desirable as there are very few from this period in Schindler’s life, and their dates and locations ‘bookend’ the story surrounding the famous ‘Schindler’s List,'” RR Auction Vice President Bobby Livingston said, according to Reuters.
