Please help fix this, honest mistake[edit]

My apologies everyone, I tried to edit the picture caption of Goeth's house and I didn't put the code in properly. As it should be can be seen at the page:

and the code is:

The balcony of Amon Goeth's house in Płaszów, from which Helen Jonas-Rosenzweig said Goeth would shoot at prisoners. Later, he used to step outside to hunt humans, with his Tyrolean hat marking his intentions. It was the signal for seasoned prisoners to attempt to hide.[1]

Thank you

gas chambers[edit]

There is a scene in Schindler's List where it shows little kids being led down stairs and then the camera cuts to a smoke stack. Were there gas chambers at this camp? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:32, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

There were no gas chambers within the compounds of the Płaszów camp. Though I will point out that the commanding SS-officer Amon Göth did ask for permission by the Administrative Offices of Berlin to build a series of gas chambers in the camp early 1944, but his request was denied. -Folklore777 (talk) 12:14, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

FYI - The scene you mention was Auschwitz, not Plaszow. Right after the women shower (not gas) scene. MALOEBOO (talk) 23:33, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Actual built Date[edit]

There seem to be some inconsistency here. On Amon Geoth Wiki, it states the following: "His first assignment, starting on 11 February 1943, was to oversee the construction of the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp, which he was to command.[12] The camp took one month to construct using forced labour. On 13 March 1943" So the camp was NOT made in the summer but on the spring. He was assigned his task and he completed the camp 1 month afterwards. So thats in March of 1943 — Preceding unsigned comment added by TrueYears (talkcontribs) 07:32, 6 October 2013 (UTC)


There is too much emotive and biased language in this article. This needs to be tidied up to make it more encyclopaedic. For instance the claim of it being "notorious for horrible terrors".Royalcourtier (talk) 00:08, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
