Germany - Suspected concentration camp guard John Demjanjuk will go on trial on November 30 facing charges of helping to kill 27,900 Jews during World War Two, a German court said on Thursday.
The trial of the 89-year-old retired U.S. auto worker is likely to be Germany's last major Nazi-era war crimes trial. The case in a Munich court is set to run to May 6, 2010, although it could be extended if need be.
Demjanjuk, long wanted by the Simon Wiesenthal Center which hunts Nazi war crimes suspects, was deported from the United States in May and has been in detention near Munich ever since.
The Wiesenthal Center says Demjanjuk pushed men, women and children into gas chambers at the Sobibor death camp in what is now Poland.
Besides Munich state prosecutors, nine individuals are joint plaintiffs in the case -- all relatives of victims. Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk denies any role in the Holocaust and his family argues he is too frail to stand trial.
