Accused Nazi Guard Deported

Though John Demjanjuk and his family did nearly everything in their power to fight his deportation to Germany to face charges related to his alleged past as a brutal Nazi guard, the feds came and hauled him away from his home on Monday. Demjanjuk, 89 and wheelchair-bound, was placed on a plane to Germany Monday night after the Supreme Court denied his appeal to stay in the country last week. He is accused of walking prisoners from train cars to the gas chambers at a Nazi death camp in 1943. He’s being charged as an accomplice in the deaths of 29,000 Jews; Demjanjuk’s family claims he is frail and the victim of mistaken identity. He’s been suspected of having a Nazi past since 1977.
