2 DOCUMENTS FROM & ABOUT THE ‘BUTCHER OF PLASZOW’
SS-HAUPTSTURMFÜHRER AMON GÖTH
FOREVER INFAMOUS SINCE THE MOVIE ‘SCHINDLER’S LIST’
Offered for sale are two documents, one handwritten and signed by SS-Hauptsturmführer Amon Göth, the other is about him and signed by an unknown SS-Hauptsturmführer. This is what the documents say:
München 16 Juli 1937
An die N.S.D.A.P. – Flüchtlingshilfswerk Berlin
Im Jahre 1933 wurde mir von den östr. Behörden sowohl meine Parteilegitimation als auch mein SS Ausweis abgenommen. Da ich meinen dauernden Wohnsitz nach München verlegt habe bitte ich um Austellung eines Überweisungsschreibens an hiesige Ortsgruppe und Bestätigung meiner Parteimitgliedsnummer, dieselbe lautet 510764
Heil Hitler – Amon Leopold Göth – bitte wenden
Meine Wohnanschrift: Amon Leopold Göth, München, street name
‘Munich July 16, 1937 – To the NSDAP Refugee Aid Berlin
In 1933 the Austrian authorities seized my Party membership document as well as my SS identification. Since I have transferred my permanent residence to Munich, I am asking for a transfer document to the Ortsgruppe in Munich and confirmation of my party membership number, which is 510764 – Heil Hitler and signature – and on the reverse side his Munich address.’
The second document, dated 26 April 1944, sent by the head fof the SS-Personalamt to the SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptam Amt A V in Berlin is saying that SS-Brigadeführer Dr. Katz denied the request to accept SS-Hauptsturmführer Amon Leopold Göth as SS-Hauptsturmführer der Reserve because he did not serve and that he would have to receive some basic training before his request can be granted. Signed by an unknown SS-Hauptsturmführer (reads like ‘Schlesinger’).
Göth was assigned to various tasks in the Generalgouvernement, including the liquidation of the Krakow ghetto, making him directly responsible for the murder and deportation of thousands of Jews. However, he really became infamous as the commandant of Plaszow concentration camp where he was nicknamed the “Schlächter von Plaszow” (Butcher of Plaszow). He personally tortured and murdered inmates nearly on a daily basis and became known worldwide as the villain in the movie ‘Schindler’s List’. He stole valuables from Jewish inmates and since the SS regarded confiscated Jewish belongings as property of the German State, he was arrested by the Gestapo in 1944 and would have been sentenced to death by a SS court, if the nearing end of the war would have not saved him. Instead, he was extradited to Poland after the war and sentenced to death by a Krakow court and executed a few days later.
