John Demjanjuk, a retired U.S. autoworker convicted of being a guard at the Nazis’ Sobibor death camp despite steadfastly maintaining over three decades of legal battles that he was mistaken for someone else, died Saturday. He was ninety-one.

Mr. Demjanjuk, convicted in May of 28,060 counts of accessory to murder and sentenced to five years in prison, died in a nursing home, having been released pending his appeal.

John Demjanjuk Jr. said that his father died of natural causes. Mr. Demjanjuk had terminal bone marrow disease, chronic kidney disease, and other ailments.
