German Authorities Consider Charges Against Demjanjuk

Of course the crimes against humanity committed by the Nazis were unspeakably heinous.  Also 65 years ago now.  And even if Demjanjuk is guilty of everything alleged, he probably had little choice but to carry out those orders.  If he hadn’t, he would’ve been killed and then someone else would’ve done what happened.  All the people (you know, like Hitler) who are really responsible are long since dead.  So I say we just let the old man rest.  He’s in poor health, one assumes natural causes will catch up with him soon.  And, that goes for United States immigration authorities also.  Just let it go already.
