Priced at 215 euros, or $305.40 at current exchange, the scarf will be sold exclusively on the federation’s Web site, fidh.org, early next month. The original copy of the scarf has been signed by actress and singer Jane Birkin, who is also an ambassador for the organization. It will be exhibited from Nov. 1 in the Paris bookshop of French auction house Artcurial and sold through silent auction on Nov. 6. All proceeds from this sale will be donated to the federation.
