The long-awaited Nazi war crimes trial of John Demjanjuk opened here in Munich with his attorney claiming his client is a scapegoat for German guilt over the Holocaust. Demjanjuk, 89, appeared nearly expressionless as he was wheeled into the courtroom Monday for his trial on charges that he was an accessory to the murder of 29,700 Jews at the Sobibor death camp in Poland in 1943. The Ukraine native was deported from the United States in May to serve trial in Germany.
