Description: 1929 KRAKOW. Aktie 100 Zl. blue, yellow, red, brown. #22500. No 22467. Central fold. The business was started in 1873 by Bernard Liban, a Polish Jew. In 1925 it became this limited company. This share is part of a 1929 capital increase from 1.500.000 to 2.250.000 Zloty. Signed by Jan Liban, nephew of the founder. He was interned by the Nazis and obliged to do forced labour. He survived the Plaszow concentration camp near Krakow, and this due to the help of Oskar Schindler, of 'Schindler's List' fame. He was on the List. Spielberg's film was made partly at the camp, inthe quarry where Liban worked, and in the Liban enamel-works near Krakow of which we offer this share. Schindler (1908-1974) is estimated to have saved the lives of some 1,300 Jews, saving from death those 'needed for his essential operations in his factory'. Thanks to the film his humanity is now known worldwide. The share certificate is of large format, colourful and attractive, showing a peasant couple harvesting wheat. Rarity 10.
