Ralph Fiennes, In Costume, Inadvertently Frightened A Survivor Who Had Known The Real Amon Goeth

Ralph Fiennes, who played Płaszów camp commandant Amon Goeth, described in an interview what he'd learned about Goeth during his research for the role, and afterward:

I remember there being accounts by survivors who talked about their terror when they saw him. He terrified the people of Płaszów. Many accounts of him were just full of the physical fear that people felt when they saw him.

Fiennes saw this firsthand when Mila Pfefferberg, a survivor who had known the real Goeth, came to the Schindler's List set. Seeing Fiennes in full costume, adopting the mannerisms of the character he was playing, Pfefferberg actually shook with fear.
