This is very cruel, Oskar. You're giving them hope. You shouldn't do that. That's cruel!
~ Amon Goeth as Oskar Schindler hydrates Jewish prisoners.

Amon Goeth is the main antagonist of Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning 1993 epic World War II drama Schindler’s List.

He is a monstrous, brutal and sadistic Untersturmführer (second lieutenant) and later Hauptsturmführer (captain) in the SS, responsible for liquidating Jews from the Kraków Ghetto, and the mass murder of Jews in the Kraków Ghetto. He is also in charge of the Płaszów concentration camp. He is based on the real life Nazi war criminal of the same name.

He was portrayed by Ralph Fiennes, who also played Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter film franchise.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Murdering a Jewish forewoman who informs him of the poor structure before following her requests to improve the structure just to twist the knife.
  • Orchestrating the liquidation and massacre of the Kraków Ghetto.
  • Shooting Jewish prisoners from his balcony for sport.
  • Trying to execute a rabbi prisoner named Lewartow just for making too few hinges.
  • Gunning down a prisoner for stealing a chicken, even threatening to do the same to others before he finds out the truth from a young boy.
  • Murdering 25 Jewish prisoners in revenge for one of them escaping.
  • Sending dozens of sick children to the gas chambers and then laughing while Schindler gives the moaning parents on a train water, thinking that he's giving them false hope.
  • Murdering a young boy who failed to clean his bathtub.
  • Lusting after and assaulting his Jewish maid Helen Hirsch, blaming her for his own lust and then brutally beating her.
  • Although he gets along with his Nazi comrades, this is possibly out of professionalism rather than any true friendship.
  • Defiantly proclaiming his allegiance to Adolf Hitler when he is about to be executed, showing absolutely no remorse nor regret whatsoever for his heinous crimes and even lacking the decency to beg for undeserved mercy.
  • Overall, actively participating in the mass murder of Jews during the Holocaust mainly for his own amusement.

Trivia

  • Amon Goeth was actually even worse in real life, with Steven Spielberg actually having to tone down his villainy because he believed that viewers wouldn't believe that some of his crimes actually happened, or that someone as evil as Goeth could keep his job, as well as for timing reasons. Some of the crimes excluded from the film include feeding prisoners to his dogs while they were still alive, shooting children with his sniper rifle, frequently using a torture cellar build under his house, and personally killing more than five hundred people.
