Demjanjuk Testifies
Refuting Accusations

Jerusalem (JTA) — On his
first day of testimony in his
own defense, John Demjanjuk
told the Jerusalem court
Monday that he was "never in
Treblinka nor in Sobibor."
However, he did admit freely
that the scar in his left arm-
pit was indeed a blood-group
tattoo, which he claimed was
a legacy from his German
prisoner of war camp, and not
a German SS trooper's tattoo.
Speaking in measured
Ukrainian, the war-crimes
defendant insisted on making
his statement, when ques-
tioned on details of his alibi.
Demjanjuk said he had at-
tempted to erase his tattoo
when he realized it was iden-
tical with those received by
the SS. However, according to
an expert witness for the pro-
secution, there are no records
of POW's receiving the tattoo.
Demjanjuk is accused of be-
ing the SS recruit known as
"Ivan the Thrrible," who drove
hundreds of thousands of
Jews into the Treblinka gas

chambers. He refutes that ac-
cusation and claims to have
remained a POW who joined
the turncoat Russian Libera-
tion Army which fought on
the German side.
Demjanjuk was questioned
by Defense Attorney John
Gill, the document expert on
the defense team who appears
to have replaced leading
cousel Mark O'Connor,
recently dismissed by his
client. Gill led the defendant
through an account of his
childhood in the Ukraine,
asking him to describe in par-
ticular his family suffering
during the devasting Ukrai-
nian famine in the early
But the main thrust of the
defense was to concentrate on
the period after Demjanjuk
was captured in 1942. Gill
asked the defendant for
details about the prison
camps where he was held, the
rations he ate, and the
numbers of people transferred
from camp to camp.

The ruling came in

series of violent clashes bet-
ween Kahane supporters and
leftists at rallies.
