Actual Schindler's List Being Auctioned on eBay

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-07_87c9a4ddcc.jpgiStockphotot(NEW YORK) -- Schindler's list — the document, not the movie — is being auctioned on eBay with a hefty starting price of $3 million. The auction was launched on Friday and will run until July 28. Gary Zimet, the curator of Moments in Time, currently owns the list. According to its website, momentsintime.com buys and sells original manuscripts, letters, and signed photographs.

Gazin Auctions, which is run by Eric Gazin, is listed as the seller on eBay. "Some real deep pockets shop on Ebay," Gazin told ABC News. "We feel this type of valuable needs to be exposed to a different type of auction." Gazin said the auction is only open to pre-qualified bidders because he needs to vet that they actually have $3 million to spend. He has already received several inquiries, he said, but declined to provide the identities of those who were interested.

Oskar Schindler was a member of the Nazi party who rescued over 1,000 Jews from deportation to Auschwitz by employing them in his factory. The ability to have your name on Schindler's list of workers meant the difference between life and death. His story gained worldwide prominence with the Thomas Keneally's book Schindler's List followed by Steven Spielberg's 1993 academy award winning film of the same name.

The list is dated April 18, 1945 and contains 801 male names, according to the description on eBay.
Zimet told ABC News there are four lists of names of people Schindler employed, but this is the only one privately owned. The other three are housed in Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.

Zimet said he received the list from a contact in Israel who is a descendant of Itzak Stern, Schindler's accountant, who compiled the lists for him.

The list will be accompanied by an affidavit from Stern's nephew, according to the eBay page.
Zimet previously tried to sell the list in 2010 for $2.2 million, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported in 2010.

That same year, Marta Rosenberg an Argentine woman who had written books about Schindler, raised questions about the authenticity of the list.

In addition to challenging the authenticity of the document, Rosenberg argued that she should have ownership of the list because Schindler's wife Emilie had listed her as her sole heir after she died. According to court documents, the court issued a temporary restraining order on sales of the list, but subsequently decided Zimet could sell it.

"The providence is ironclad," Zimets said of the list's authenticity. "Her suit was laughed out of court."
