  • Turn WWII packet in to the tray by the door.  If you don’t have the packet, sign up for Overtime on the clipboard to be able to earn up to 90%.
  • Complete the WWII test using a #2 pencil.  Be sure to write your name on the test.  When finished, turn test and answer sheet in to tray.
  • After finishing the test, pick up the Cold War vocab sheet and the Cold War map and start working on these.  Map will be due Tuesday, and vocab will be due on Thursday, May19.

Here is the info for your essay:

Holocaust survivors and their relatives wept yesterday as 91-year-old John Demjanjuk – the man billed as one of the world’s last Nazi war criminals – was jailed by a German court for his role in the slaughter of thousands of Jews at the Sobibor death camp during the Second World War.

  It was an emotionally charged ending to the trial of the Ukrainian-born former SS guard who was extradited to Germany two years ago after escaping justice in Europe, Israel and America for most of the last 66 years.

  Throughout his 93-day trial, which began in November 2009, Demjanjuk had stubbornly refused to say anything. He maintained his silence as Judge Ralph Alt convicted him on 16 counts for complicity in the murder of 27,900 Jews at the Sobibor extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1942 and 1943. Demjanjuk was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, but allowed to walk free pending appeal. The prosecution had demanded that he serve only a six-year jail term because of his advanced age.

  • Is this an appropriate sentence in this case?  If so, why?  If not, what should have been done differently?
