John Demjanjuk Dies

Nazi camp guard Demjanjuk dies


John Demjanjuk, who was found guilty for his role as a guard at a Nazi death camp in World War II, has died aged 91, German police say.

He had been sentenced in May 2011 by a German court to five years in prison, but was released pending an appeal.

He died at a home for the elderly.

The court said Demjanjuk, 91, was a guard at Sobibor camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943. He denied this, saying he was a prisoner of war and a victim too.

An estimated 250,000 people died in the gas chambers at Sobibor. Demjanjuk was convicted of being an accessory to the murder of the 28,060 people who were killed there while he was a guard.

Demjanjuk's family said during his trial that he was very ill.

He was also convicted on similar charges by a court in Israel in 1986, but the verdict was overturned when doubts emerged about his identity.

Born in Ukraine in 1920, Demjanjuk grew up under Soviet rule.

He was a soldier in the Red Army in 1942 when he was captured by the Germans.

Prosecutors had argued he was recruited by the Germans to be an SS camp guard and that by working at a death camp he was a participant in the killings. No evidence was produced that he committed a specific crime.

It was the first time such a legal argument had been made in a German court.

Central to the prosecution's case was an SS identity card indicating Demjanjuk had been posted to Sobibor. The defence cast doubts on the authenticity of the card but court experts said it appeared genuine.

This is tragic news. I hope the vindictive monsters who persecuted this innocent man throughout most of his adult life will now allow him to rest in peace. Sadly judging by their past behaviour I suspect they will now turn their attention to his poor family.

The way this man was set, hounded and abused over more than two decades is truly disgusting. His passing has merited an article in th British tabloid Daily Mail, it so far has four comment all rejoicing in his death, one claiming absolutely that his relatives were all gassed by Demjanjuk. I have commented online but wonder if my comments will be published as, of course, they do not concur with the story line.

The Daily Mail just went with the old 'facts' including his ID card, which as we all know was debunked as a fake by the CIA chief in charge at the time. Still, never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Can other observers comment on how this story is handled in other countries please?

FOX News.com (whose motto is "Fair and Balanced") did a pretty good job of recapping Demjanjuk's travails over the past few decades--although their headline began with "Convicted Nazi Criminal...".

The article included the following excerpt which I found interesting:

"His conviction helped set new German legal precedent, being the first time someone was convicted solely on the basis of serving as a camp guard, with no evidence of being involved in a specific killing."

Most of the articles in American mainstream coverage include the accepted death figures for Sobibor along with quotes from organizations like Yad Vashem that validate the campaign against Demjanjuk. This entire episode is a classic example of how accepted rules, ethics, and precedents are ignored when the holocaust is involved. The last third of this man's life was ruined for no good reason!

The BBC marked Mr Demjanjuk’s death with this very biased and in my opinion slanderous video.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17413307

If anyone is thinking the name of the reporter who made that video rings a bell they’d be right. Rob Broomby is none other than the piece of filth who co-authored Denis Avey’s controversial pack of lies The Man who Broke into Auschwitz.

Rest In Peace John.

Another victim of the holocaust lie and its lackeys.

I would not be surprised if it wasn't a "natural" death...

I know it sounds grim, but at least he can finally have some peace. It's unfortunate he had to get peace by passing on.

According to the Ukrainian News, Demjanjuk's son has notified the deputy head of the Ukrainian Republican Party of the burial site, but requests it not be divulged.

Convicted Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk was secretly buried in the United States on March 31, the Ukrainian News reported on Wednesday. The report quoted Rostyslav Novozhenets, deputy head of the Ukrainian Republican Party, saying he heard the news from Demjanjuk's son, John Demjanjuk Jr., who sent him an email describing the place of burial.

Demjanjuk was born in the Ukraine and, after escaping the United States, kept in contact with the local community there.

John Demjanjuk Jr. reportedly confirmed that his father was buried, but requested the place not be divulged. According to the report, a few people attended the funeral ceremony, including family, the attorney from Germany, Ulrich Busch, and the attorneys from the U.S. who defended Demjanjuk when he was extradited and deprived American citizenship.

Demjanjuk's son and lawyer refused to reveal any information about the burial to Haaretz. The fact he was buried in secrecy suggests the family is concerned the place will turn into a site for neo-Nazis or a source of harassment by other groups.

Demjanjuk died in March at a retirement home in South Germany, aged 91. Last year, he was convicted of assisting in the murder of 27,900 people at the Sobibor concentration camp, in Poland. He died before judges had reached a verdict on his appeal.

Earlier this week, Haaretz published the last photo of Demjanjuk, which was taken in the summer of 2011. In the photo, he looks comfortable, seated in the garden of the retirement home where he spent his last months.

One can only hope the Industry do not discover the location of the burial site.

Rest in Peace.

His son should put a memorial up right in the center of Sobibor.

Then he can claim the remains are underneath it, but the remains must not be disturbed due to religious reasons. :cheers:

Would they doubt the remains were there because they couldn't investigate?
Would they have the memorial removed?
Would they want to REVISE the story?

What would all those Jewish "deniers" do then? :D
