May 12, 2011

A German court found retired U.S. autoworker John Demjanjuk guilty of accessory to mass murder Thursday. Demjanjuk, who was born in Ukraine, served as a guard at a Nazi death camp during World War II, but there was no evidence he committed a specific crime. However, the court found that by volunteering to work at the camp, he had participated in mass murder.
