An archived copy of a UN identity card issued to John Demjanjuk and declaring him to be a Displaced Person. Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was convicted in 2011 by a German court for his role in killing 28,000 Jews as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in during World War Two. He died in March 2012 in a care home in Germany.
Struggling with Israeli guards in 1988, John Demjanjuk of Cleveland, Ohio, shouts his innocence: "I am not Ivan the Terrible!" Though born in the Ukraine, the naturalized American denied he had been a brutal guard at Treblinka. He was allowed to return home. But recent Soviet evidence indicates Demjanjuk lied about his past, and he could face loss of his citizenship.
