Washington (JTA) — A
federal appeals court last
week affirmed an earlier rul-
ing blocking the U.S.
government from deporting
a Cincinnati man who ad-
mitted serving as a guard at
a Nazi labor camp in
western Germany.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals in Cincinnati re-
jected the government's ap-
peal of a ruling by a three-
judge panel of the court in
September.
The panel had barred the
deportation of Leonid
Petkiewytsch, 68, who ad-
mitted having served at the
Kiel-Hassee labor camp
when he applied for U.S.
citizenship. He had been liv-
ing in the United States on
an immigrant visa since
1955.
The three judge panel said
the government had failed to
prove that Mr. Petkiewytsch
had abused prisoners.
Few Jews were at the Kiel-
Hassee camp because in-
mates there were serving
sentences for Nazi crimes
other than being Jewish.
