John Demjanjuk’s DP identity card

The ITS Archives hold the Displaced Person identity card of John Demjanjuk, or Ivan as he was then called. In December 2009, legal proceedings began in Munich against the alleged guard in Sobibor Concentration Camp. The ITS does not possess any concentration camp documents on Demjanjuk. However, after the war he posed as a former forced labourer and Displaced Person when seeking the Allies’ assistance for emigration. In March 1948 he filled in a questionnaire stating that he had been employed as a driver in Sobibor.
