Federal prosecutors on Thursday submitted videos of John Demjanjuk to a federal appeals court that show the alleged Nazi death camp guard walking and talking animatedly. Prosecutors filed the April 6 videos at the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, and said the videos show a contrast from the 89-year-old man who groaned on April 14 as agents carried him from his home, The Plain Dealer newspaper reported. An arrest warrant claims Demjanjuk was an accessory to some 29,000 deaths during World War II in Nazi-occupied Poland. The Cincinnati-based appeals court halted Demjanjuk's deportation shortly after immigration officers took him from his home. The court has since requested detailed records about Demjanjuk's medical condition to see if he's healthy enough to travel.
