MUNICH — A German police investigator says John Demjanjuk's name is on papers detailing the transfer of guards from an SS training camp to the Nazi's Sobibor death camp.

Demjanjuk, a retired Ohio auto worker who was once a Soviet soldier, is accused of agreeing to serve the SS as a guard at Sobibor after his capture. He is standing trial on 27,900 counts of accessory to murder.

He says he was never at Sobibor and is being mistaken for someone else.

Bavarian police inspector Hugo Daumann told the Munich state court Wednesday he has seen a copy of a 1943 list of transfers from the Trawniki training camp to Sobibor with Demjanjuk's name on. The original is in Russian archives.

The defense disputes evidence from Russia, saying it could be faked.
