95-Year-Old Former Nazi Camp Guard Deported from US
A former Nazi concentration camp guard who has been living in New York City since 1949 has been deported to Germany. The 95-year-old, who was granted citizenship in 1957, lied to US officials decades ago, saying he was a farmer from Poland. The truth came out several years ago that Jakiw Palij had worked at a Nazi concentration camp where 6,000 Jews were shot dead on November 3, 1943. Palij’s US citizenship was revoked in 2003, but until now Germany has refused to take him in saying he wasn’t a German citizen. The Trump administration made it a priority to deport him to Germany. German authorities say Palij was placed in a retirement home and will likely not be tried for any crimes.
自1949年以来一直住在美国的一名前纳粹集中营看守被遣返回德国。这名95岁的看守在1957年得到了公民身份，几十年前他曾对美国官员撒谎，自称是波兰的一名农夫。几年前事实浮出水面，原来Jakiw Palij曾在纳粹集中营工作过，1943年11月3日，该集中营的6000名犹太人被射杀。Palij的美国公民身份在2003年被取消，但现在德国依然以他不是德国公民为由拒绝接收他。特朗普政府把遣返他列为了第一要务。德国官方称Palij被安置在一家养老院中， 可能不会因任何罪行受审。
