REPORT: Ex-Nazi camp guard deported from U.S. dies in Germany
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by USATODAY.COM:
Jakiw Palij, a former Nazi concentration camp guard who was deported from the U.S. after a lengthy legal battle, has died in Germany in a nursing home at the age of 95, according to German officials.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Westfaelische Nachrichten newspapers quoted German officials as saying Palij died in elderly care home in the town of Ahlen.
Palij, who was living in Queens in New York City when he was deported in 2018, had been stateless since a federal judge revoked his U.S. citizenship in 2003.
The article goes on to state the following:
Born in Poland in 1923 as an ethnic Ukrainian, Palij was trained by the SS in the Trawniki concentration camp in southeastern Nazi-occupied Poland in 1941, according to Deutsche Welle. So-called “Trawniki men” went on to participate in the Holocaust as guards in Belzec, Sobibor, and Treblinka concentration camps.
Jakiw Palij had emigrated to the U.S. as a war refugee in 1949 and became a naturalized citizen in 1957. He was living in the New York City borough of Queens when he was deported in 2018. https://t.co/cakYsF9Ui7
