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.
