But the Jewish Museum in Sydney, and descendants of survivors are, “angry that a carbon copy of his famous list was sold to the State Library of New South Wales,” says the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
“The list, itself a carbon copy of the original, has been ‘discovered’ amongst Keneally`s research papers at the State Library of NSW who bought the documents from the dealer with no inkling of what they contained,” says Oz site J-Wire.
The document is the original copy given to Keneally by Leopold Pfefferberg, who persuaded him to write the story, says the post, adding »»»
A spokesperson for the State Library told J-Wire: When we bought Keneally`s papers, there was no list of contents. Privacy restrictions involving living authors preclude us from detailing the price we paid.
J-Wire spoke to Leopold Pfferberg`s daughter Marie in Los Angeles. She said: My late father made many copies of the List and my mother has the original copy still in her possession.
Pfefferberg`s widow, Mila, told J-Wire: Whatever Tom Kenneally did is OK with me. He is a wonderful man.
“Our experts stated it was possibly from the 1940s but we have no way of accurately dating the copy,” the library’s Dr Olwen Pryke is quoted as saying.
