Trial of a Suspected Nazi Guard

Highly public trials for the architects of the Holocaust have been held for years, in Nuremberg, Germany, Jerusalem and elsewhere. Now Germany prepares to try John Demjanjuk, 89, in what is expected to be the last time the story of the mass murder will be played out so fully in a courtroom -- the last time survivors will testify against a man suspected of being one of their families' willing executioners.
