John Demjanjuk is fit to stand trial for allegedly serving as an accessory to the murder of 29,000 Jews and others at the Sobibor death camp during the Holocaust, German doctors have determined. The doctors said the 89-year-old retired auto worker, recently deported from the United States, can stand trial so long as his time in court does not exceed two 90-minute sessions daily, Munich prosecutors said. They added that formal charges can be expected this month.
