Ever heard of John Demjanjuk? He’s 89 years old, lives in Ohio, and is a retired autoworker. Sounds plain enough.
The former Ukrainian, who now is confined to a wheelchair and an oxygen tank, is also being accused as an accessory to the murder of 29 000 people.
Why, you ask? Because he was a guard at a Nazi death camp in Poland in 1943.
Despite not having proof of direct involvement in the killings, German authorities are still trying to hold him responsible for those deaths.
And they’re wrong.
They’re looking for a scapegoat to appease their consciences. But that scapegoat shouldn’t be a man afflicted with severe health issue and who?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s biggest cooperation in the matter was not stopping the deaths.
