Alleged Nazi Guard Is Ordered Deported
An immigration judge has ordered the deportation of an elderly man accused of being a Nazi death camp guard during World War II.
Prosecutors said Theodor Szehinskyj, 79, of West Chester, served in a Waffen-SS Death’s Head unit during the war and helped guard prisoners at the Gross-Rosen, Sachsenhausen and Warsaw concentration camps from 1943 to 1945.
Szehinskyj, a retired machinist, has denied that he was a guard. He told investigators he was a farmhand for the war’s duration and had nothing to do with the Nazis.
Szehinskyj has lived in the United States since 1950.
