Whatever crimes this man may have committed, he has more than piad his debt to society. He'll be dead within a year or two. Even if you take way the last 25 years of hounding he has endured, his life wasn't exactly a bed of roses. Let it go. No good has come from this and none will come from him being convicted.

He was acquitted in Israel for being the wrong guy. Why are they trying to do this again. There is no solid evidence and he's knockin' on Death's door.

Being old or being "dead within a year or two" should not excuse the atrocious crimes he allegedly committed. Tell the victims' families that "no good will come from him being convicted."

WTH??? Being old or about to die should not excuse you from a crime you've committed or allegedly committed!

Then quit dicking around and prove this man committed the crimes he is accused of committing!

I agree that those who planned and benefited from the holocaust should never know a moment of peace on this earth. The evidence against this man, however is shaky at best. That the Supreme Court of Israel released him, should be the last word on him.

If he is who they say he is, he would have been in his early 20's, and to say he should let himself be killed rather than being coerced into being a guard at one of the nazi camps, is an utter fairy tale.

Let him die, in his home with his family at hand.

Let's turn these resources and zeal for prosecution to those crimes against humanity that in the last 60 years..in Asia, Africa, In Middle East and Eastern Europe; the leaders and benefiters of those atrocities are still walking around and many are enjoying the fruits of their crimes.

I'm so sick of hearing about this crap. The guy may be guilty or may not be, but either way he'll be long dead before any final judgment comes about in the court case.

It would appear that the US is not the only judical system that is based on noteriety and self promotion. What possible good can come from convicting a man of his age and who, even in court, appears to be on his death bed.

This man and his family, whether he is guilty or not, have already served 25 years of persecution, humiliation, financial, and emotional loss. Enough.

It is not like there are not other pursuits for the overzealous prosecution teams. Look around! Do something that will actually benefit society as a whole.

I agree Germany is trying to make themselves feel better at this individual's expense; nothing changes what was and still is happening within the country. You can't expect Germany or any other country to go after those in Asia, Africa, In Middle East and Eastern Europe who committed far worse crimes yet countries like they enabled these individuals all the while making hand over hand of money.

Before any other dumbarse makes a comment our family lost land, money and family members to the Nazis. Just stfu now and don't even start for the simple reason the courts in Israel let him go this needs to stop so he can come home to his family.

There is no way he was involved in these deaths. In fact he protected many of us from just that!

Demjanjuk has been declared not guilty by Israel. That should have bee the final word. This trial is what happens when you let Intermational puppet courts take over your judical system. This is how it will be for ALL Americans when obamas' liberal progressives take over the judical system, and subject us to Islamic law.

This is something out of Kafka--or maybe Pirandello.
It owes more to that than to justice.

Germany is guilty of the war of destruction against the Soviet Union through which I lost my home and homeland.

Germany is guilty of forcing me to become a prisoner of war.

Germany is guilty of creating prisoner of war camps where through purposeful denial of enough food rations I and millions of other Red Army prisoners were sentenced to die of starvation and only with God’s help did I survive.
Germany is guilty of forcing me to become a slave labourer of the Germans in the prisoner of war camp.

Germany is guilty of this war of destruction where 11 million of my fellow Ukrainians were murdered by the Germans and more millions of Ukrainians, including my loving wife Vera, were abducted to Germany to forced labour and slavery by the Germans.

Germany is guilty of making thousands upon thousands of my countrymen unwilling German collaborators and forcing them to join in the perverse genocide program against Jews, Sinti, Roma, Slavs, Ukrainians, Poles and Russians under the threat of death as hundreds and more than hundreds that wanted to refuse this, were killed for that by the Germans. Over and above this, hundreds of thousands were deported to Ukraine and executed by Stalin or tortured for ages in the Siberian Gulag and lowered to work as slaves for the Communists.

Germany is guilty of forcing me to live a wretched life as a displaced person in a DP camp years after the war.

Germany is guilty of forcibly having me deported to Germany even after 30 years of legal prosecution in Israel, the USA, as well as, Poland and after more than 10 years of imprisonment, more than 5 of those in a death cell in Israel, at the end of my life and in my 90th year.

Germany is to blame for false charges of accessory to murder being levied against me at the end of my life when I am without life’s energy in violation of 65-year-old case law and also in violation of the EMRK (European Convention for Human Rights).

Germany is to blame for my having to vegetate more than 9 months in Stadelheim, in a prison, isolated, not free – though innocent.

Germany is to blame for my having forever lost my second homeland, the USA, without a chance to return.

Germany is to blame for my having forever lost the sense of my entire life, my family, my happiness and any kind of future and hope.

I have experienced every minute, every hour, every day, every week and every month since May 12, 2009 as a prisoner of war in Germany.

I consider this trial, which is held exclusively against me, an alleged foreign Travniki, in violation of the principles of equal treatment as provided to German SS members and to an uncountable number of “German Travnikis”, incompatible with justice and the principle of equality. I have already defended myself against the accusation of the Munich prosecutor while in Israel. In Israel, I was accused of being connected to Nazi crimes in Sobibor. The Israeli Supreme Court specifically recognized that this accusation of the Israeli Prosecutor could not be proven, a legal verdict was decided on the Sobibor accusation in such a manner taking into account with special reference to the already suffered arrest of more than 7 ˝ years. I was jailed in Israel for these charges against me for 7 ˝ years with 5 of those years in a death cell.

My beloved wife Vera, with whom I have been married for over 50 years, also suffered in Germany. It was the Germans who deprived my wife of her youth and took her by force to Germany for years of forced labor. She was for years in German slave labor under cruel and inhumane conditions.

The suffering that we endured in connection with the German war of annihilation against us Slavs is not describable in measurable words. That Germany has again and again chosen me and my family to be victimized is, for me, incomprehensible.
