John Demjanjuk convicted of aiding the killing of 27,900 Jews during Holocaust
Another Nazi brought to justice. 5 years is a joke considering he assisted in the murder of 27,900 Jews, but he will likely be dead before the end if his sentence anyway.
From Haaretz on the Demjanjuk sentencing:
A German court found John Demjanjuk guilty on Thursday of helping to kill 27,900 Jews at the Nazi death camp Sobibor during the Holocaust.I am not sure why he needed a translator in order to say "No".
The Munich court sentenced the 91-year-old to five years in prison as an accessory to mass murder as a guard at the Polish camp during World War Two. Defense attorneys had said during the 18-month trial they would appeal any guilty verdict.
Earlier Thursday, when Asked by judges whether he wanted to say any final words Thursday, Demjanjuk - speaking through an interpreter - replied: "No."
He should rot in hell.
