Nazi War Criminal. Born Ivan Mykolaiovych Demianiuk, he became a United States citizen in 1958. In 1981 he was tried in Israel for war crimes committed while he was a watchman at Sobibor, a "death camp" in Poland during World War II. He lost his United States citizenship and was sentenced to death, but his sentence was overturned and his citizenship reinstated due the court's inability to prove he was actually "Ivan the Terrible." Charged again in 2001, he was not deported from the United States to Germany for trial until 2008. In 2011 he was convicted in Germany of aiding in the deaths of over 28,000 Jews. He was sentenced to five years in prison in Germany but appealed this sentence. He died in a German nursing home before his appeal was heard. (bio by: Daddys♥Girl)
