Demonstrators protest outside NYC home of former Nazi guard

Location: New York, NY
November 9, 2017

Police stand guard as students from Rambam Mesivta Orthodox Jewish high school protest across the street from the home of a former Nazi prison camp guard, Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, in New York. About a 100 students from the school protested the presence of 94 year-old Jakiw Palij, a former Nazi concentration camp guard whose citizenship has been revoked, but hasn’t been deported. Palij was a guard at the Trawniki concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943. He has said he was forced to be a guard. A federal judge removed Palij’s citizenship in 2003, saying he falsified his immigration application. New York’s legislators have urged the federal government to deport Palij.
