John Demjanjuk, accused of helping to kill 27,900 Jews in the Holocaust, was forced to appear in court on Thursday after the 90-year-old had refused to attend the previous two sessions due to health reasons.
Judge Ralph Alt ordered Demjanjuk to appear on Thursday. He was rolled into the Munich courtroom on a hospital stretcher. “Yes, he was ordered to show today, and yes he showed,” Alt told Reuters. He declined further comment.
