'Nazi Camp Guard' Dies

BERLIN — John Demjanjuk, a former Ukrainian convicted of being a low-ranking Nazi guard at the Sobibor death camp, died Saturday aged 91.

The conviction of the retired U.S. autoworker in a Munich court in May on 28,060 counts of being an accessory to murder, which was still being appealed, broke new legal ground in Germany as the first time someone was convicted on the basis of serving as a camp guard, with no evidence of involvement in a killing.

Demjanjuk steadfastly maintained that he had been mistaken for someone else. His son, John Demjanjuk Jr., said his father apparently died of natural causes.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
