A collection of documents from World War II industrialist Oskar Schindler, including a letter he signed that made the way for the rescue of more than 1,000 Jewish factory workers, has fetched more than $122,000 at an online auction.
The letter, dated Aug. 22, 1944, describes permission to move Schindler’s enamelware factory and its workers from Poland. Historians say that move allowed him to carry out the rescue chronicled in the 1993 film “Schindler’s List.”
Schindler had been tipped off in the summer of 1944 that the Nazis planned to close factories unrelated to the war effort. Through bribery and personal connections, he got permission to produce arms and move the factory and its workers to Brunnlitz, in Sudetenland, or Sudetengau, in what is now Czech Republic.
It’s believed to be the first known document confirming the move.
