Vilnus, Lithuania - An 85-year-old man deported from Florida went on trial in his native Lithuania on charges of helping Nazis round up Jews during World War II.  Algimantas Dailide is accused of being a member of the Nazi-sponsored Lithuanian Security Police, known as the Saugumas, which took part in the arrests of Jews during the war, contributing to the Nazis’ European-wide Holocaust.  Dailide, who moved to the U.S. in 1955 and lived there until he was deported in 2003 for lying about his wartime past, denied the charges in the Vilnius District Court.  “I worked as a clerk for the Lithuanian police force, not the Nazis,” Dailide said.  “These accusations sound like a fairy tale (and) absolute nonsense to me.”
