Amon Goeth liquidates the last Jews in Krakow ghetto

The inmates of Plaszow were often forced to watch the execution of other prisoners - people who had been condemned for trivial reasons or none.

We were then marched off, under heavy escort of SS men and Ukrainians, in the direction of the camp. We were beaten with rifle butts all the way. Whoever, had a decent looking suitcase, had it duly taken from them by the Ukrainians. Anyone who was older, or could not keep the pace of the march, was severely beaten. Having arrived at the camp, the next day, I awaited for the arrival of my wife and child, unfortunately without success.
