I have some down time at work and was curious to get some other thoughts on this article I came across. (Kind of a random SB poster, but knew it would get some action here vs. other boards)http://tinyurl.com/6kpan5d
Demjanjuk was sentenced to five years in prison on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder for the number of people who were killed in the Sobibor death camp when the court said evidence shows he stood guard there in 1943.
Though scores of Nazi war criminals have been tried and convicted in Germany, in this case there was no evidence that Demjanjuk committed a specific crime.
His prosecution was based on the theory that if Demjanjuk was at the camp, he was a participant in the killing — the first time such a legal argument has been made in German courts.
Another side note, he was deported from the US two years ago.
