U.S. prepares to send accused Nazi to Germany
Alleged ex-death camp guard charged 29,000 times of accessory to murder

CLEVELAND - The U.S. government said Tuesday that it has contacted the German government to get travel documents needed to complete the deportation of accused Nazi guard John Demjanjuk.

The 88-year-old suburban Cleveland man is charged in Germany with 29,000 counts of acting as an accessory to murder while working as a guard at a Nazi death camp in occupied Poland during World War II.

His son, John Demjanjuk Jr., said Tuesday that his father remains at home and is not in federal custody.

The German warrant seeks the deportation or extradition of Demjanjuk, who lives in Seven Hills and denies involvement in any deaths.
Demjanjuk will be formally charged in front of a judge once he is extradited, prosecutors in Munich, Germany said.

"In this capacity, he participated in the accessory to murder of at least 29,000 people of the Jewish faith," said the prosecutor's office, which is handling the case because Demjanjuk spent time at a refugee camp in the area after the war.

The suspect's family has said he is in poor health and unable to travel.
"My dad spent a few hours in the emergency room the other day," John Demjanjuk Jr. said. "He is being treated for kidney stones at present."

He said his father has chronic kidney disease, along with other serious ailments.
