The Wiesenthal Center Welcomes Investigation of Ivan Demjanjuk and Urges the German Government to Expedite Extradition Request

The Simon Wiesenthal Center today in Berlin has welcomed the announcement of the Zentrale Stelle at Ludwigsburg according to which they have collected enough evidence for an indictment against the presumed mass murderer Ivan Demjanjuk. The Wiesenthal Center expressed the expectation that he is going to be tried in Munich as quickly as possible. (The Zentrale Stelle of Ludwigsburg has passed the case there because Demjanjuks last German residence was near Munich.)

Dr. Efraim Zuroff, director of the Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem who is actually staying in Berlin, says: “We urge the German Government to expedite this case as quickly as possible so that Demjanjuk can be fully punished for his crimes”
