    To me, the most important thing is that the world remember the Holocaust. Not because the majority of the victims were Jews, but because the ultimate lesson is that ANY nation might do the same and that NO nation should be allowed to do the same again. So for myself, the worst that can happen is that Demjanjuk will again be acquitted. And i cannot imagine that the Supreme Court of israel would have freed him if any competent case could be made against him. Indeed, it has been conclusively proven that he was NOT the person prosecuted in Israel. And it is clear NO American prosecutor was willing to try him on the feeble evidence available. I hope the German prosecutor has the goods on the guy. But what if he is innocent? Or even worse, if there simply is not sufficent evidence to convict him? Will the ultimate effort of those absolutely determined to 'get' John Denjamnjuk no matter what, have given irrevocable aid to those who wish to portray the Holocaust as a fraud?
