(JTA) — A survivor testifying at the war crimes trial of accused Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk said he did not recall seeing Demjanjuk at the camp.

The court heard Tuesday from Thomas Blatt, 82, one of the few remaining survivors of the Sobibor death camp. Blatt, who lost his family there, recounted many details about his months at the camp until he escaped during a prisoner uprising in October 1942. He said he could not remember seeing Demjanjuk there.
