A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected a request to restore the U.S. citizenship of a recently deceased Ohio autoworker convicted of Nazi war crimes.
John Demjanjuk, a retired U.S. autoworker who was convicted of being a guard at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp despite steadfastly maintaining over three decades of legal battles that he had been mistaken for someone else, died Saturday, his son told the Associated Press. He was 91.
Convicted of serving as a Nazi death-camp guard and in failing health at 91, John Demjanjuk still hopes he might be able to return home to Ohio, his son said after seeing his father face to face for the first time since his deportation in 2009.
Retired U.S. autoworker John Demjanjuk was convicted of thousands of counts of acting as an accessory to murder at a Nazi death camp and sentenced on Thursday to five years in prison, a groundbreaking verdict that closed one chapter in a decades-long legal battle.
John Demjanjuk's lawyer argued Thursday for his client's acquittal on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp, saying the 91-year-old alleged former guard suffered as much as the Jews did at the hands of Nazis.
John Demjanjuk told a Munich state court Tuesday he would go on hunger strike unless judges pursue more evidence that he claims could exonerate him of charges he served as a Nazi death camp guard.
Samuel Kunz, one of the world's most-wanted Nazi suspects who was under indictment on allegations he was involved in killing hundreds of thousands of Jews at a concentration camp in occupied Poland, has died, a Bonn court said Monday.
The case of the retired Ohio autoworker accused of serving as a Nazi death camp guard has become increasingly dominated by the 90-year-old defendant's failing health.
He has steadfastly denied that he ever helped the Nazis, arguing that he served in the Soviet army and was captured by Germany in 1942 and became a prisoner of war.
He again argues he is being mistaken for someone else and denies having served as a guard for the Nazis anywhere.
