The Nation : Holocaust Victims Testify

March 13, 1985

Holocaust survivors' testimony was introduced at an extradition hearing in Cleveland to show that a retired auto worker is the Nazi guard "Ivan the Terrible" who tortured Jews as he herded them into death-camp gas chambers. U.S. government attorneys presented the evidence on behalf of Israel, which is seeking to extradite John Demjanjuk, 64, of suburban Seven Hills to stand trial for slaying Jews during World War II. He allegedly ran the gas chamber at the Treblinka death camp in Poland, where 900,000 Jews died in 1942 and 1943.
