|Vol. 136||WASHINGTON, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 1990||No. 18|
(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. TRAFICANT. Mr. Speaker, CBS's crew of "Sixty Minutes" flew to Poland. They heard of a woman who said she had known of Ivan the Terrible. Maria Dudek, 70 years old, told Ed Bradley off camera that she knew Ivan well. He would take gold from the Jewish prisoners and come to town. He would buy vodka from her husband and pay for the right and privilege to sleep with her.
Also, Mr. Speaker, Maria Dudek said she knew this man by his real family's name, Ivan Marczenko.
Ivan Marczenko's name is listed under the Polish War Crimes Committee as being a known Ukrainian guard at Treblinka. John Demjanjuk, convicted of this crime; his name appears on no list anywhere in the world.
Mr. Speaker, I think the Justice Department should come clean on this case. We must track down Nazi war criminals and put them to death, but we do not blindfold the Statue of Liberty and shred the Constitution to do it
I want to know who Ivan the Terrible really is, and Congress should want to know beyond a reasonable doubt, and in this case there is not even any reason now. Look at the RECORD tomorrow.
