    Excellent photos, thank you for sharing!

    I've noticed that a lot of elevators and escalators in the U.S. are made by the Schindler Co... I wonder if this modern company is at all related to Oskar Schindler?
    I have a neighbour who works for Schindler Lifts ........ get it? ( he doesn't! )

    Great thread, Thanks guys.

    Hi Harry, her story is rather sad. She never knew her Dad and the story about him only come out when she young after a family row. She though he simply was killed during the war. I can highly recommend the film about her as quoted in post 18.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I do remember know that the veiw of the camp was partially blocked with a mound of earth, but you could certainly see a lot of the camp area. Ade i saw that Documentary it was very interesting, his daughter came across as a very troubled person, i really did feel sorry for her...

    It took the executioner three times to properly hang Goth. The gallows was a slightly elevated platform. The first two times the trap was sprung, Goth landed feet first on the ground as they had used to long a rope. The botched hanging can be viewed on Youtube.
    Hi Bob, i watched a new programme the other night called bloody tales and this hanging on youtube was investigated and found to be not Amon goth but another Nazi war criminal, the records on goths exection just said killed, rgds Dave Bloody Tales | Series 1 - 1. Executions | Radio Times

    Thanks for the information. I wonder who the guy was. He evidently was of some importance as they took the time to film the hanging.

    It is definitely Fischer. There is a photo of him on his Wikipedia page,
    Ludwig Fischer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    He was definitely responsible for a lot of evil deeds in Poland.
