It’s finally time for John Demjanjuk,former Nazi internment camp guard known as “Ivan the Terrible,” to face the music for the atrocities he committed at the jewish death camp known as Treblinka and Sobibor extermination camps.

During the period 1942–1943 Demjanjuk committed murder and acts of extraordinarily savage violence against camp prisoners,as an act of loyalty to Hitler.

The 89-year-old retired Ohio autoworker arrived at the opening of the trial in a wheelchair to face the final chapter of some 30 years of efforts to prosecute him, wearing a navy baseball cap and covered in a light blue blanket.

At 89, Ivan the Terrible looks…terrible. [picapp align=”right” wrap=”true” link=”term=*john+demjanjuk&iid=7165037″ src=”6/7/2/4/Nazi_Death_Camp_2837.jpg?adImageId=7945738&imageId=7165037″ width=”234″ height=”167″ /]

He appears to be a slobbering, shaking, infirmed shell of a man, who is deserving of all the prosecutions efforts to convict him of the Nazi’s crimes against humanity, and more directly, the murder of 27,900 Jews at the Nazi death camps.

Lawyer Ulrich Busch said “How can you say that those who gave the orders were innocent … and the one who received the orders is guilty?”

“There is a moral and legal double standard being applied today.”

Well…he is a Nazi.[picapp align=”right” wrap=”true” link=”term=*john+demjanjuk&iid=2532158″ src=”2/8/5/9/John_Demjanjuks_US_24cd.jpg?adImageId=7945722&imageId=2532158″ width=”234″ height=”261″ /]Demjanjuk was deported in May from the United States to Germany, and has been in custody since then. He could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted,and if he is convicted, it is likely that he will die in prison.
