Demjanjuk Dead

John Demjanjuk died in Germany yesterday. He was convicted as Nazi death camp guard last May but always maintained that he had been mistaken for somebody else.
25 years ago I photographed him during his trial in Israel. He was convicted there too and even sentenced to death. This verdict was later overturned by the Israeli Supreme Court on the grounds of a mistaken identity. For more images from the period of the First Intifada in Israel and the occupied territories see here.
