Schindler's List found

Schindler's actual list has been found.

Thirteen fragile yellow pages, 801 typed names, have been found in Australia, between the pages of Thomas Keneally's research notes for his book Schindler's Ark, which was used as he basis for the film Schindler's List.

Keneally had been handed it almost 30 years ago in a shop in Los Angeles, by one of the people who Schindler helped escape - Leopold Pfefferberg, Jewish worker 173 on the list.

Imagine, holding the actual list. That must be up there with the original Magna Carta, or being allowed to touch the Bayeux Tapestry*.

*Which isn't actually a tapestry, but that's a whole other topic.

I figured, the way this site is, that somebody must know somebody who had family on the list.

Someone said Magna Carta? Guess where a 1216 copy is on display :D

Hmmmm... I'd guess near the top of the only significant hill in a very flat county.
