Demjanjuk in Munich
Lawrence Douglas, the James J. Grosfeld Professor of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought, discusses the case of Ivan Demjanjuk. Demjanjuk’s trial, which started in Munich in late November 2009, promises to be the last of the great trials involving Nazi atrocities. The Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk, who lived for decades in suburban Cleveland, stands accused of complicity in the deaths of 27,900 Jews during his services as a guard at the Sobibor Death Camp. Douglas examines the meaning of Demjanjuk’s bizarre legal odyssey, now in its third decade. He also explores the larger legacy of the struggle, particularly in Germany, to bring Nazi perpetrators to justice.
