Original Schindler's List Uncovered
(IsraelNN.com) A list of Jewish people saved by Oskar Schindler that inspired the novel and Oscar-winning film has been found in a Sydney library, according to the Dailymail. The list contains the names of 801 Jews saved from the Holocaust by the businessman. It was discovered in a box belonging to author Thomas Keneally among manuscript materials he used to create the book Schindler's Ark. Keneally's book went on to become a major motion picture.
The 13-page list, a carbon typescript copy of the original, was found between research notes and German newspaper clippings. Library co-curator Olwen Pryke said the document was, “one of the most powerful documents of the 20th Century and a moving piece of history. It was hurriedly typed on April 18, 1945, in the closing days of WWII, and it saved 801 men from the gas chambers.”
