The Trials of John Demjanjuk: A Holocaust Cabaret


In 1987, Cleveland auto worker John Demjanjuk was accused of being Ivan the Terrible of Treblinka and brought to trial in Jerusalem for crimes against humanity. The circus of the public trial transforms the courtroom into cabaret, lawyers into Nazis, and survivors into singing emcees.
