Demjanjuk Sentenced

Former Nazi prison guard sentenced for crimes in Poland during World War II.

The judge in the court in Munich said he was convinced that Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk, 91, was a guard at the Sobibor death camp “and that as a guard he took part in the murder of at least 28,000 people.”
. . .
But the prosecution produced an SS identity card which, it claimed, held a picture of John Demjanjuk. Although the defence challenged the authenticity of the card it proved vital and contributed to the conviction of one of the last men to stand trial for Holocaust-era crimes.
