CLEVELAND — Some advocates worry that if convicted World War II criminal John Demjanjuk (dehm-YAHN'-yuk) is buried in suburban Cleveland, his grave could become a place of neo-Nazi pilgrimage.
Demjanjuk died at age 91 in Germany. He was awaiting appeal on more than 20,000 counts of accessory to murder at a camp in occupied Poland.
He was once mistaken as "Ivan the Terrible," a feared guard at another camp. The Israeli government later said it appeared that was another man.
Still, Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says that could lead neo-Nazis to visit his grave if he is buried in his adopted hometown of Seven Hills.
And Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center says a funeral would turn into a spectacle.
