John Demjanjuk: A Former Sobibor Concentration Camp Guard Living in America?

What is Ohio resident John Demjanjuk accused of?

According to Der Spiegel, Demjanjuk may be an accessory to the murder of 29,000 people:

On March 10, the State Public Prosecutor in Munich issued an arrest warrant against Demjanjuk, first making his deportation to Germany possible. In it, prosecutors accuse the 89-year-old of being an accessory to the murder of 29,000 people. As an alleged guard at the Sobibor death camp in German-occupied Poland, Demjanjuk is believed to have helped drive tens of thousands of people into the gas chambers. Demjanjuk has denied the allegation he served as a guard. But investigators possess strong evidence to the contrary.

    Let a trial determine that. Advanced age does not reduce guilt. If he is guilty of the charges against him, then the outrage is that he got to live, after the war, a full and quiet life in America, and got to live to a ripe old age.

    If he proves guilty, what was God thinking, letting him kill so many Jews and then allowing him to live out the rest of his days in relative peace?
