John Demjanjuk, Convicted Nazi Death Camp Guard, Dies At 91

DETROIT (WWJ) – German police say John Demjanjuk, who was convicted last year of serving as a Nazi death camp guard, has died at the age of 91.

Police say that Demjanjuk passed away Saturday at his home for the elderly in southern Germany — where he lived since his trial ended in Munich last year.

Demjanjuk, a retired autoworker, was deported to Germany in 2009 to face trial in Munich after being stripped of his U.S. citizenship.
