Re: "Nazi hunters renew efforts after reports on top target" ...

This article by Kate Connelly in the 07Feb09 Guardian is posted at this URL
and contains this extraordinary paragraph, filled with inaccuracies:

"Other names prominent on the wanted list include Ivan (otherwise known as John) Demjanjuk, the former Ukrainian concentration camp guard nicknamed "Ivan the Terrible", who was said to have participated in the deaths of thousands of prisoners at Treblinka. The 89-year-old lives in the US and is facing a new trial."

John Demjanjuk was held in Israel between February 1986 and September 1993 and tried and ultimately acquitted of being "Ivan the Terrible" of Treblinka by the Israeli Supreme, and released to go home to his family in Ohio.

I'm surprised you didn't hear or know of this. It was in all the newspapers at the time.

Also: John Demjanjuk is 88 - not 89 - years old.
