Listed at $3 Million, Schindler's List Seller Looking for Qualified Bidders

Schindler's list, which proved to be a life-saving document for more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust, is being auctioned on eBay at the modest starting bid of $3 million.

The list, dated April 18, 1945, was created by Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party who rescued Jews from deportation to Auschwitz by employing them in his factory. The document is 14 pages long and lists 801 male names, according to the eBay listing.

The auction, which was launched at 9 p.m. ET Friday, gives pre-qualified bidders until July 28 to name their price for a piece of history. Eric Gazin, who runs the auction house that has put the list up for sale, told ABC News he needs to verify potential owners can actually front the cash.

"Some real deep pockets shop on eBay," Gazin said. "We feel this type of valuable needs to be exposed to a different type of auction."
