(ABCNEWS.GO) — An auction of one of Oskar Schindler’s famed lists on eBay at a starting price of $3 million closed without receiving any bids, as some experts questioned the price tag.
Schindler, a factory owner and member of the Nazi Party, saved more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them in his factory. His employees were documented on lists made famous in Thomas Keneally’s book, “Schindler’s List,” the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film. Those on the lists were saved from deportation to concentration camps.
The list that was up for auction contains 801 male names and is dated April 8, 1945.
David Crowe, a Holocaust historian and the author of the book, “Oskar Schindler: The Untold Account of His Life, Wartime Activities, and the True Story Behind the List,” said that the date of the list may be one reason it did not receive any bids.
