    That's not the same item Kris. The ebay auction was for a list of 800 of the people that Schindler saved. But it was not one of the original lists written at the time in question in 1944, it was written later in April 1945 as a sort of resume or updated 'list', so whilst not being fake, it was not what is really considered as part of the original 'list of life'.

    The starting bid was asking for $3,000,000 buyer collects, but it didn't receive a single bid and was withdrawn. The above letter if proven as genuine and of the time when the initial 'list' was being drawn up stands a chance of being picked up by a collector or museum, as it would be considered a more historical document than the ebay 'list' which is considered as a revisionist piece or official copy that was considered not worth $3,000,000 by a long straw.
