Protect the house from Schindler's List. Make it a recognised site of Holocaust Memory

JRoots started this petition to Jacek Majchrowski Mayor of Krakow and

Protect the famous house from the movie Schindler's List - Make Amon Goth’s villa in the Plaszow Concentration Camp into a recognised site of Holocaust Memory.

The world famous Nazi torture house portrayed in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List is being refurbished into a luxury family villa, destroying important history from one of the last remaining buildings of the Plaszow Concentration Camp. The new owner has overturned a decades-long precedent for visitors to access the villa, and wants to make a torture basement where Jewish women were imprisoned into a wine cellar.

JRoots have taken thousands of people to Krakow to visit this historic site. We are petitioning the Krakow City Council to ensure that the villa occupied by Nazi Concentration Camp Commander Amon Goth be recognised as a part of the new Plaszow Museum site. We are requesting that a plaque be attached to the property and that groups continue to be allowed to visit this important site of heritage.
