Troy, MI - A federal appeals court won’t overturn a decision that orders the deportation of a Michigan man accused of shooting Jews during World War II.

John Kalymon of Troy lost his naturalized citizenship after a trial in 2007. The appeals court said Friday there’s nothing wrong with using evidence from that case to justify the retired engineer’s deportation in separate hearings.

An immigration judge ordered his removal in 2011, a decision that was affirmed by the Board of Immigration Appeals. The 91-year-old Kalymon is in poor health and has remained in Michigan during the appeals.

In his 20s, Kalymon served in the Nazi-sponsored Ukrainian Auxiliary Police in Lviv, which once was part of Poland. He denies shooting Jews. His attorney says an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court is possible.

Of the nearly 100 Nazis deported from the USA, since 1973, very few of them have faced criminal prosecution by the countries to where they were deported. Only one, Andre Artukovic, was executed by the Soviet Union, for crimes against humanity. The first Nazi deported, was Hermine Braunstein Ryan. After Simon Wiesenthal identified her in 1964, as being a sadistical guard at the Madjanek concentration camp in Poland, who beat and tortured prisoners, (she was openly living in Queens for many years), it took the Justice Department seven years to bring a case against her, and another two years to deport her to West Germany. It took the West Germans five additional years to bring a case against her,and another four years to convict her in 1981. Although she was sentenced to life, she was released after 15 years. She died shortly thereafter, y'mach shimo.

As a child of Holocaust survivors, growing up in a community of survivors, a common refrain amongst them was that the Ukrainians were the most cruel and sadistic employees of the Nazis, carrying out there grim tasks with great joy.
Good riddance
