Amon Leopold Goeth (11 December 1908 – 13 September 1946) was an SS Hauptsturmführer & the commandant of the Nazi concentration camp in Płaszów in German-occupied Poland during World War II. He was tried as a war criminal after the war. After the Supreme National Tribunal of Poland at Kraków found him guilty of murdering tens of thousands of people, he was executed by hanging.
