The starting price for the list is $3 million.

The document, printed in 1945 and consisting of 14 pages, is one of four rare copies of Schindler’s list. Director Steven Spielberg used one of the copies during production of his Oscar-winning 1993 film, “Schindler’s List.”

The current owners purchased it from the nephew of Yitzhak Stern, Schindler’s accountant who typed each list, and whose family held on to the document in Israel throughout the years. The document is authenticated by the nephew’s signature and note of declaration.
