A unique piece of Holocaust history now on display at the Jewish Holocaust Centre.
Long thought lost, the model that was used at the end of the Second World War by a group of Oskar Schindler’s Jewish workers to make a gold ring for him has been found. It lay in the ring-maker’s workshop in Melbourne for more than 50 years.
Oskar Schindler, the hero of Thomas Kenneally’s book, Schindler’s Ark and the Spielberg film,Schindler’s List was a German industrialist and member of the Nazi party who saved Jews by employing them in his factory and treating them humanely. About 1200 Jews were saved by him.
