     To begin with, something that Ernst Zundel has pointed out.

     The novel SCHINDLER'S LIST, upon which Spielberg's recent hate movie
was based, is ADMITTEDLY FICTION!  It is listed and described as FICTION.
The inside cover of the novel even reads:

     "This book is a work of fiction.  Names, characters, places and
     incidents are either products of the author's imagination or are used
     fictitiously.  Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons,
     living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
           Rockefeller Center
      1230 Avenue of the Americas
       New York, New York 10020"

     "How these people have the gall to turn a film based on a novel into
suddenly being the basis of history is really beyond me."  --Ernst Zundel

               Air photos show Spielberg's movie fiction.

PLASZOW CAMP (pronounced PLASH-OFF in Polish)

EYE-WITNESSES, is surrounded by a steep hill so it is not visible from
outside, where inmates are shot by Commander Goeth from the front balcony of
his house on a hill above the barracks.  The movie version is surrounded by
a steep hillside that prevented outsiders from seeing inmates.  Commander
Goeth, on his front balcony, is seen shooting working and relaxing inmates
beside the barracks in the inmates' camp.  [See file 1.GIF]

     1944 AIR PHOTOS SHOW the camp was visible through wire fences from 3
villages.  Goeth could not have shot inmates from his house balcony, as the
house was at the bottom of a hill and he COULD NOT SEE OVER OR AROUND THE
HILL INTO THE INMATES' CAMP.  The camp was located next to Cracow city,
beside a major roadway, and was visible from hundreds of houses in 3
surrounding villages.  [See file 2.GIF]

     Photo 1.  1994:  In the movie, Goeth's balcony is above the camp and
surrounded by a steep hill.  [See file 3.GIF]

     Photo 2.  1943:  Goeth on his balcony.  His house is to the right and
the hill is to the left of the photo.  The hill blocked the view to the
inmates' camp, and the hill, trees, and house behind Goeth in the photo
blocked the view to the guards' camp.  [See file 4.GIF]

     Photo 3.  1943:  Women pushing carts into the inmates' camp.  Houses in
Plaszow village are in the distance.  [See file 5.GIF]

     Photo 4.  1943:  Hundreds of large rye bread loaves were sent daily
from the kitchen to the 50 inmate barracks.  [See file 6.GIF]

     Photo 5.  1943:  One of the 6 hospital buildings.  2 Jewish doctors,
Gross and Lewkowicz, also supervised the kitchen.  (Reference #1, p. 461)
[See file 7.GIF]

     Photo 6.  1943:  Soup or stew was delivered daily to the barracks; 5
times a week, ground meat was added.  (Reference #1, p. 461)  [See file

     Is Spielberg's movie HOLLYWOOD HATE PROPAGANDA?  The film contains
brutal murders of women and children, savage beatings of women, profane
language, use of women as sex objects, and nudity.  (It is not seen in the
Philippines because of the nudity.)  Young people are shocked, emotionally
traumatized, and have nightmares.  Spielberg copied the movie from a novel,
yet he presents it as historical fact, including scenes of fiendish Germans
casually murdering people.  The movie generates hatred against Germans, and
it should be possible to BAN it under "HATE LAWS" in Canada, Germany, and
other countries.  Join the worldwide campaign to BAN SCHINDLER'S LIST!
