. There are plenty of people still alive in Germany who worked in the death camps and didn't serve so much as a day of prison time. So why was this Ukrainian PoW singled out for special treatment?
13 July, he was formally charged with 27,900 counts of acting as an accessory to murder, one for each person who died at Sobibor during the time he served as a guard.
Demjanjuk wasn't singled out for special treatment; about 300 former Nazis were "deported, stripped of citizenship or blocked from entering the United States" once the USA started seriously investigating them in the 1970s. Once deported they were a matter for the receiving countries and at least some of them were prosecuted and convicted.
