Argentinean wire transfer with full Schindler autograph

Rare DS in Spanish, one page both sides, 8 x 4.75, December 13, 1952. A wire transfer for the sum of 2600 Argentinean pesos to be sent from Oskar Schindler to Gertrude Tutsuth, with Schindler authorizing and signing the transfer on the reverse in fountain pen. The front bears an "Italo Argentina of International Transport, Travel and Tourism Section" stamp. In fine condition.

Oskar and Emilie had exhausted their savings in their work to save 1,200 Jews via their enamelware factory during World War II, and in 1949, with financial help from a Jewish organization, moved to Argentina to begin farming. By 1957, however, Oskar Schindler had become bankrupt and returned to West Germany alone—he never saw his wife again, although they remained married. His heroics during World War II were immortalized in the famous 1993 film Schindler's List.
