MUNICH - John Demjanjuk sat in a wheelchair wrapped in a light blue blanket, his eyes closed and his face pale as his trial opened Monday on charges he helped kill 27,900 Jews as a Nazi death camp guard. Lawyers for the retired Ohio autoworker portrayed him as a victim - of the Nazis and misguided German justice. But three German doctors testified the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was fit to stand trial. Wearing a blue baseball cap, Demjanjuk, 89, was wheeled in to the packed Munich state court and did not answer when presiding judge Ralph Alt asked if he could answer basic questions about himself.

WASHINGTON -- The last time Patrick J. Buchanan jolted the Republican Party, it was 1992, and a cold rain descended on his parade. Mr. Buchanan blamed his enemies, but the harshest criticism cameonclude that Mr. Buchanan had trafficked in loaded stereotypes about gender and sexual orientation, race and religion.After his victory in the New Hampshire primary this week, Mr. Buchanan's attitudes on those sensitive matters are receiving fresh scrutiny.He appears in the ensuing four years to have tempered his tone without altering the in-your-face substance of his brand of conservatism.

Frank Battisti, 72, the former chief federal judge in the northern district of Ohio who ordered busing to integrate Cleveland schools in 1976, died Wednesday in Cleveland of typhus and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. He also handled the government's case against John Demjanjuk, a retired Cleveland-area autoworker who was convicted in Israel as the notorious Nazi death camp guard "Ivan the Terrible." The conviction was overturned on appeal and Mr. Demjanjuk returned in 1993 to the United States.

JERUSALEM -- It was not only a sensational trial of a former guard at a Nazi death camp but a national catharsis filled with heart-wrenching testimony and then a kind of liberating calm.In April 1988, after a televised trial to which schoolchildren were brought on field trips, a panel of three Israeli judges pronounced John Demjanjuk, a retired Cleveland auto worker, to be Ivan the Terrible, the Treblinka gas chamber operator who impressed even fellow death camp guards with his butchery.The court said it determined "unhesitatingly and with utter conviction" that Demjanjuk was the dreaded Ivan, and he was sentenced to hang.

JERUSALEM -- The appeals hearing of John Demjanjuk, accused of sadistically sending Jews to their deaths in a Nazi concentration camp, reopened yesterday with the defense lawyer charging his client is the victim of an American and Israeli plot and the prosecution complaining that the defense was doing the work of people who "hate Jews."Little was said directly about new evidence obtained from the Soviet KGB, which reportedly throws into question the conviction and death sentence handed down for Demjanjuk, 71, a Cleveland, Ohio, auto worker from Ukraine.

John Demjanjuk returned to the United States yesterday, turned loose by an Israeli judicial system unable to convict him of being the arch war criminal "Ivan the Terrible" at the Treblinka death camp but still certain he was a smaller cog in the immense engine of the Final Solution.His case has bred fears in some quarters that the near eight-year imprisonment of Mr. Demjanjuk, the grueling 15-month courtroom struggle and its inconclusive outcome might hurt the effort to bring to justice remaining perpetrators of Holocaust crimes.

TEL AVIV, Israel -- The former director of the U.S. Justice Department's Nazi-hunting unit denied that in the late 1970s he had documentation in his files suggesting that the Treblinka sadist known as "Ivan the Terrible" was a man other than John Demjanjuk, who is awaiting an Israeli Supreme Court ruling.The former chief, Allan A. Ryan Jr., was responding to suggestions Assistant Attorney General Robert S. Mueller III made Friday in Washington. Mr. Ryan said from the Boston area that the department had not contacted him and that he is upset at how the case is being handled.

CLEVELAND -- The wood-and-wire fence went up yesterday morning around the modest, blond brick home in suburban Seven Hills. Earlier, bright-pink professionally printed signs sprouted on doors, windows and trees of the neighboring homes: "NO TRESPASSING. PRIVATE PROPERTY."The wagons have circled around the frail-looking 73-year-old neighbor who has been absent for seven years, save for images in the media. Although sprung on Tuesday from an Israeli prison, he remains locked in a heated, history-bound controversy that prevents this man, accused of being a Nazi death-camp guard, from returning to the neighborhood that would embrace him even as others would condemn him to the same fate as his alleged victims.

OPERATION SHYLOCK: A CONFESSION.Philip Roth.Simon & Schuster.398 pages. $23. Here it is, Opus 20 by the author of "Patrimony" (supposedly a memoir), "The Facts" (ostensibly an autobiography) and a passel of semiautobiographical novels, such as "Deceptions," which defy the reader to call them fiction. Here is yet another book straddling the line, refusing to tell its readers quite how it wants to be read. Is it, as the subtitle alleges, "A Confession," Philip Roth's honest recounting of some personal responsibility?
