| Filed under: Etc.

A private collector is putting up a very rare WWII artifact up for sale today:

An original copy of Oskar Schindler's list!

It is the only privately owned, genuine draft of Schindler's list of Jewish people he helped save from the Nazis and it can be yours for the price of $2.2 million.

The anonymous owner is having Gary Zimet sell the 13-page list of 801 names, who told the press that the list is "arguably the most important World War II document" available for purchase. Gary is selling the list through his Web site, MomentsInTime.com, on a "first come, first served" basis.

History buffs will sure want to get their hands on this one! Just hope they can afford it!

    $5 says Spielberg will get it.

    Why wouldn't he permanently loan it to a museum? Hopefully a museum snatches it up, it is a shame when items like these are kept in private collections.

    This piece of history should be in a museum where they can protect from deterioration.

    Speilberg will get it.

    It's rather interesting how Hollywood spins history. It cleans up all the unflattering bits and leaves us with a savior rather than slave-driving war profiteer, by presenting him as contrite and tortured. The British didn't see him as a heroic man, but a contemptible one, who did what he did for practical, selfish motives, NOT compassion. However, embellishing legends so that people will take heart has been going on FOREVER, and always will. His (dramatically licensed) story brings attention to the atrocities of the Holocaust, which can never be done enough as long as apathy still reigns, and deniers keep ranting, which was why I was wary of saying anything in the first place. Talk to people who were there at the time, as in plenty of historical instances, you might find out things aren't the way the Almighty Press wants us to believe. I'm sure the people that WERE ultimately helped by him were beyond greatful, it wasn't a time where one could choose between dignity and death.

    if the list is real, it belongs in a museum. it annoys me when rich people think they can own shit like this and not give everyone else in the world a chance to see it.

    wow this is kinda sick, it shouldn't be sold! should be given to a jewish museum so jewish families can use it to heal. it's a historic artifact not a cash cow!

    Steven Spielberg should purchase it and donate it to a museum. He's worth over a billion dollars, he can afford it.

    Hmmm…
    :/

    I don't see why you'd want to own that O.o
    It's make me feel really twisted, you know?

    It should go to a museum.

    "arguably the most important World War II document"

    How big an ego and how greedy do you have to be to say something stupid like that?

    Talk about dumping on all the non Jews who died in WWII. And there were many, many more nonJews who died terribly!!

    But I guess they aren't important to this sleazy dealer.

    i agree with most commentor's: If authentic, shouldn't this be in a museum???



  12. 12

    This is a little sick. Something like this should not be sold for 2 million dollars, thats an insult. Clearly a valuable piece of history is priceless!!!! put it up in a museum where it should be! not on some rich scums hands.

    Late again on reporting?

    Calm down people, I'm pretty sure this story was brought to light because, somewhere behind the scenes, the curators of the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC were trying to make a deal with Gary Zimet and this anonymous owner. More than likely, the museum WILL purchase it, and all will be well in the world

    I agree with Yayabuttercup…why not donate it to a museum? This is something that needs to be protected and displayed where people can see. Its to important and valuable to the world's history to just be sold off.



  16. 16

    why isint it in a museum? whoever buys this should have the decentcy to donate it to a museum.



  17. 17

    I hope a museum buys it. That is where it should belong.

  18. pj88 says – reply to this

    C'mon Spielberg… buy this and donate it to the Smithsonian

    There is something terribly disgusting about this.

    To 'sell' and profit from something like this is inhuman.

    There is a special place in hell for this person. And I have the right to say that being the grandaughter of a holocaust survivor.
