A Very Ordinary Henchman Demjanjuk Trial to Break Legal Ground in Germany

The trial against suspected concentration camp guard John Demjanjuk is a legal first for Germany. For the first time, a person who was low on the chain of command is to be indicted, even though there is no proof of his having committed a specific offence. Other alleged henchmen have gotten off far more lightly.
