    Amon Leopold Goeth (1908-1946), a native of Vienna, joined the Nazi party in 1932 and the SS in 1940. During the war he was sent first to SS headquarters in Lublin and subsequently to Krakow, where he was put in charge of the liquidation of the ghettos and labor camps of Szebnie, Bochnia, Tarnow and Krakow. From February 1943 until September 1944 Goeth held the position of commandant of the Plaszow concentration camp near Krakow. After the war he was extradited to Poland, where he was tried before the Polish Supreme Court. He was sentenced to death and executed in Krakow in 1946.
