Eugenia Samuel   Testimony   23-Jan-1984   I don't see any similarity
During my staying in the death camp of Treblinka I knew an Ukrainian guard of violent temper, known as the brutal Ivan, a powerful man, with bushy hair and protruding eyes.
The main point of the Eugenia Samuel testimony below is that John Demjanjuk had close-cropped hair, and does not have protruding eyes.  Furthermore, Eugenia Samuel testified that the Demjanjuk photograph shown her was not that of the individual she remembered in Treblinka.  These two things by themselves in any country adhering to Western standards of justice might have led to John Demjanjuk being acquitted of being Ivan the Terrible of Treblinka instead of convicted and sentenced to death, and only grudgingly acquitted upon appeal.

A secondary point worth noting is that the risking, and the sacrificing, of Slavic lives to save Jews was a commonplace during the war which has been largely suppressed in today's media, as has the fact that any reciprocal risking and sacrificing of Jewish lives to save Slavs appears to have been non-existent during the many persecutions of Ukrainians that have occurred within living memory, or before.

TESTIMONY

I, Eugenia Samuel, born Podles (maiden name) March 28, 1927 in Wolka, Sokolov, Podlaski county using identification document No. BP 8642499, issued by KPMO (Komenda Powiatowa Milicji Obywatelskiej) in Sokolov Podlaski on May 12, 1967, testify that in Summer 1943 I was arrested and brought to the death camp of Treblinka as a Jewess, since there were many Jewish escapees from the camp sheltered by Polish peasants which was considered a crime punishable by death as, for instance, the whole family of Samsel, exterminated by the Germans for sheltering Jews.  Fortunately, however, the family to which I came from Warsaw was courageous enough to testify that I am not Jewish, thus causing my release from tortures which left traces on my body up to this time in forms of earlobes ripped up and piece of my flesh ripped out by special shoes with protruding nails.  During my staying in the death camp of Treblinka I knew an Ukrainian guard of violent temper, known as the brutal Ivan, a powerful man, with bushy hair and protruding eyes.  I didn't see him at the court case in Krasnodar, USSR, where I was called, with Jozef Wujek, as a witness in 1960 (April 6 to April 19) and I don't see any similarity between him and the photograph attached to a card made to the name of Demjanjuk which was shown to me.
