Ex-Nazi Concentration Camp Guard, Living in U.S. Since 1959, Faces Deportation
Herrick counsel and co-chair of its Government Relations Group, the Hon. Elizabeth Holtzman, was quoted in The Washington Post article "Ex-Nazi concentration camp guard, living in U.S. since 1959, faces deportation." In a recent case in Memphis, the judge ordered the deportation of a Nazi soldier, living in Tennessee, under a 1978 law known as the Holtzman Amendment, barring anyone who participated in Nazi-sponsored persecution from entering or living in the United States. "This is an important step in bringing Nazi war criminals to justice." said Hon. Holtzman "We cannot forget as a nation, and this court decision shows that we are not forgetting."
