Body of Nazi Demjanjuk to Be Flown to Cleveland



The body of dead Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk will be flown to suburban Cleveland, Ohio, where the Demjanjuk family lives. Born Ivan Demjanjuk in Ukraine, a German court convicted him of crimes related to being a volunteer death camp guard in World War II.

The United States government deported Demjanjuk after it concluded he lied about his Nazi past to become a United States citizen. Demjanjuk passed away at the age of 91 in Germany on Saturday.
