Composed and walking slowly, John Demjanjuk went to court Monday in a bitter fight against one of his biggest supporters.[Source]
Jerome Brentar sued the family of the Seven Hills man for $2 million, seeking reimbursement for helping Demjanjuk's defense against allegations that he was a Nazi sentry.
The family now questions Brentar's motives, saying they believe he tried to further his agenda as a Holocaust revisionist, or a person who believes the Nazi atrocities against Jews didn't happen.
"Brentar's views are part of a larger anti-Semitic motive and movement," Boukis said in documents.
Boukis wants to present a great deal of evidence linking Brentar to the revisionist movement, which Brentar's attorney, Boyd, has fought. Judge Timothy McGinty said he would rule later in the trial. Brentar has said he is not anti-Semitic.
Oh, the irony!
Former guard at extermination camp Sobibor, and also at Majdanek and Flossebuerg, Ivan Demjanyuk has long ago become the icon of the "revisionist" movement. I will write about denier arguments concerning his case later. For now - enjoy the hypocrisy. If D's family was so concerned about Holocaust deniers, why didn't they urge Jonny to tell the truth about Sobibor, Majdanek and Flossenbuerg, instead of denying that he ever was there?
