Idk... i have mixed feelings about this... but yeah... 3mill is 3mill
As a historical document it is quite important.
I would buy it but they only have "Free Local Pickup", no shipping no deal.
What strikes of interest to me here is how the seller actually got the fkn list!
So the ebay seller has a tonne of feedback for selling cheap costume jewelery and assorted tat.....oh and a 3 million dollar list of massive cultural importance !
Have they not heard of Sothebys ?
3 mil? lol i remember when a guy sold "forehead advertisement" for like 30k and another guy sold his life (basically slavery lol) for 300k (this included his house and personal items).
Also how did a list from Germany get to Israel?
Oh yes, Oskar Schindler, the businessman who saved the lives of over 1,100 Jews by employing them in his factory.
Who can ever forget this image?
but IMHO we need to remember the needlesss and senseless killings of many millions of Jews and others during the Holocost and World Wars.
Putting a financial amount on peoples lives?
Opportunistic at best (I think it sold before for over $2million)
but adsurbly bad taste at worst.
There again, some art is priceless to some, worthless to others,
and although an historical artefact, just plain wrong.
No further comment.
I would have take a look at the NY times from 1920-1921 where 6 million jews died in ukraine because they had nothing to eat because of stalin.And not a single person is talking about it.
This should belong to a museum, i find it sad to know that this could fall in the wrong hands and just dissapear forever.
You must of read the NY times wrong because it was 6 million people not jews (meaning it wasn't one specific race or religion that died).
edit: but i do agree that it's messed up that no one has ever mentioned this, i had to google it just to find out what it was.
Thats some crazy shit
Wow I wonder if anyone is going to buy this!
some people are just crazy... someone buys pixels, someone buys virginity of chicks...
someone even tried to buy a place in heaven on ebay... I mean: what's wrong with you?!
bigcasey i mean 6 million jews and didnt read it wrong.Here an example after a quick research (not NY times but the atlanta constitution from 1920)
NY times has similar articles on the same timeframe
I also think this list belong to museum.. but.. as from what i know family who owned it sold it to someone...and from then its on public auctions...According to reports, collectors Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin are selling the document on behalf of an unidentified collector, so now its up to museums if they want to buy it or some other rich dude will have it in his private collection.
