I am not here to hold a lecture on the case of John Demjanjuk, or to criticize once again the United States, Israel and Germany for the fact that they caused more than 40 years of unspeakable suffering and injustice for John, or to detail how Germany misused John and about 30 Jewish people from the Netherlands, who were victims of German cruelty during the Nazi time, for an illegal political show trial.
I am simply here with the desire to say a last goodbye and farewell to John.
During the last three years of his life, while I was at his side, John Demjanjuk was the focus of my professional life as a criminal defense lawyer in Germany. But that was not all. There was so much more.
