Demjanjuk: 'Terrible case'Re: “No satisfaction in Demjanjuk case,” May 21, 2011.
In the 30-odd years the John Demjanjuk case has been before the courts,
one thing’s stayed constant: Demjanjuk always denied being a German
concentration camp guard. His 1988 conviction for war crimes as “Ivan
the Terrible” of Treblinka was overturned on appeal
by the Israeli Supreme Court, after the accused had spent five years on
death row. Now he’s appealing this latest verdict. Who’s to say it
won’t also be overturned and Demjanjuk will die exonerated at long last?
(Once it was proven he
wasn’t Ivan, this whole case probably should’ve just been dropped.)
