Rare documents from Holocaust hero Schindler up for auction
NEW YORK (AFP) - Rare documents that a historian says fill in some major gaps in the story of Holocaust hero Oskar Schindler have gone up for auction online.
New Hampshire auctioneers RR Auction said on Wednesday the items - including blueprints for an expansion of Schindler's factory in Poland - are available for bidding through Aug 14.
The sale comes on the heels of the failure by a Los Angeles-based auctioneer to find any bidders for an original Schindler's List at a staggering US$3 million (S$3.8 million).
Schindler is credited with saving the lives of some 1,200 Jews employed in his factories during World War II. He died in anonymity in Germany in 1974 at the age of 66.
