Victim families: Demjanjuk should be convicted

Lawyers for the relatives of people killed at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp say evidence shows John Demjanjuk was a guard there and he should be convicted of accessory to murder.
Demjanjuk, who is 90, denies having ever served as a Nazi death camp guard anywhere. He's on trial on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder.
In closing arguments Wednesday, attorneys representing people whose relatives died in the camp, serving as co-plaintiffs in the trial, said the evidence demands a conviction.
Rolf Kleidermann says he believes one witness who said he trained with Demjanjuk in an SS camp _ even though the witness could not identify Demjanjuk in court.
Attorney Arno Laurent says the defense's contention that an SS ID card implicating Demjanjuk is a Soviet fake "is an absurdity."
