Israel's High Court of Justice postponed the appeal of convicted war criminal John J. Demjanjuk because his lawyer, Yoram Sheftel, is still recuperating from having acid thrown in his eye by an assailant whose family died in the Holocaust. Demjanjuk, 68, was sentenced to hang last spring after he was convicted of being the sadistic Treblinka death camp guard "Ivan the Terrible." His appeal had been scheduled to begin Dec. 5.
