ⓘ Hujowa Gorka

Hujowa Gorka is a place near the site of Krakow-Plaszow concentration camp, where in April 1944 the Germans exhumed and incinerated the bodies of around ten thousand previously killed Jews, to hide the evidence of the crime before retreating from the area. The place took its name from the surname of Unterscharfuhrer Albert Hujar who committed and directed the executions. It is also a mockery of Hujars surname, which is pronounced similarly to a vulgar Polish language expression for "penis", hence the name is Polish for "Dick Hill".

Albert Hujar, who served in the Schutzstaffel SS Concentration Camp service, is portrayed in the 1993 drama Schindlers List by Norbert Weisser.
