A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld a decision to revoke the US citizenship of an 87-year-old Michigan man accused of shooting Jews as a member of a Nazi police unit. A judge ruled last year that John Kalymon of Troy was ineligible for citizenship because of his service to Nazi Germany. Kalymon was in the Nazi-operated Ukrainian Auxiliary Police during World War II. The judge found that Kalymon's unit rounded up Jews, oversaw forced labor, killed those attempting to escape and delivered others to killing sites for mass execution. Kalymon appealed, claiming mistaken identity but the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati on Thursday agreed he should lose his citizenship. A message seeking comment from Kalymon's lawyer was not immediately returned.
