Schindler Autograph Goes To Auction

Published on April 16, 2008 with No Comments

The last remaining autographed photo of holocaust hero Oskar Schindler is to be sold at auction.

The German industrialist, made famous in Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning Schindler’s List, was responsible for saving 1,400 Jews from death during World War II.

Schindler signed the photo in 1949 before giving it to a family he had taken in during the war. It currently belongs to Sholamit Vesengred, the son of two Holocaust survivors, who hopes to attract bids of up to $150,000 when the picture goes under the hammer later this year.

And he has revealed he plans to get in contact with actor Liam Neeson – who played Schindler in the 1993 film – in the hope he’ll join bidders and bump up the price.
