(Getty Images) (Newser) – A New York judge has approved the sale of a 13-page list of names said to be an original "Schindler's List," reports the Telegraph. An heir to Oscar Schindler's widow had sought to block the sale, which could fetch more than $2 million. Seven lists were made, and five are thought to have survived. The list in question is the only one remaining in private hands. Schindler's attempts to save thousands of Jewish refugees in Nazi Germany were made famous in Steven Spielberg's 1993 film.
