2 PAGE DOCUMENT, RECOMMENDING THE PROMOTION OF THE ‘BUTCHER OF PLASZOW’
AMON GÖTH TO SS-HAUPTSTURMFÜHRER
FOREVER INFAMOUS SINCE THE MOVIE ‘SCHINDLER’S LIST’
THE RECOMMENDATION IS A RESULT OF HIS RUTHLESS LEADERSHIP OF THE JEWISH FORCED LABOR CAMP PLASZOW
Offered for sale is a two-page document, dated 23 July 1943 and issued in Krakow by the Höhere SS- und Polizeiführer Ost and signed in procura by an unknown SS-Sturmbannführer. He recommends Amon Göth’s promotion to SS-Hauptsturmführer because of his excellent leadership of the Jewish forced labor camp Plaszow.
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.
