    24-27) Various views of the former film set location. Spielberg's "Schindler's List" was filmed at this site which is often misidentified as the former camp location. However, it is not - it is actually the former Liban quarry site nearby. The remnants are from the film shooting, not that of the Konzentrationslager. The reproduction detail even included the placing of false Jewish gravestones - the original camp reportedly had a road built using stones from two Jewish cemeteries located nearby. The film's reproduction stones include repeated doubles which bear the same name.

    Great photos Carl and they bring back memories of my visits, i was lucky enough to get inside the house of Amon Gth as the old Polish guy who owns it arrived while i was taking photos and let us in, the only place we couldn't explore was the infamous balcony which is in a bad state of repair.
    The last time we visited there were a few homeless people living in the tunnels, they actually showed us around the camp in exchange for a few zlotys to buy beer!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    28) Finally, an image taken from the movie. It clearly shows the former quarry walls in the background. Compare this with the images posted earlier in the thread and it becomes easier to establish that the images numbered 24-27 were taken at the location of the film shoot, not on the former camp grounds.

    Thank you Carl for yet another detailed and informative thread. I personally found the references to the film of Shindlers list most interesting as I have recently read the book "The boy on the wooden box" by Leon Leyson , who is as far as I am aware the only personal memoire account from "the list". I would highly recommend this book for reading as it is written by one of the most humble forgiving gentlemen , a true and everlasting piece of wonderful human love and survival opposed to the short lived idioic ideals and hate of Nazi Germany! Leon (not related but would be proud to!)
