A decision not to make a decision has decided the fate of a former Nazi death camp guard living in St. Louis. But there is a hitch. It appears 83-year-old Adam Friedrich is ready for deportation, but his native Romania has a law against taking him. A federal judge in St. Louis stripped Friedrich of his U.S. citizenship last year. The U.S. Supreme Court has now declined to review the case, clearing the way for deportation. Friedrich served as a guard in the Waffen SS during World War II. Whether he will be returned to Romania is unclear. His attorney says Romania bars entry to people convicted of crimes against humanity. A second former Nazi guard from the St. Louis area, 85-year-old Michael Negele, also is in limbo, because of the Romanian law.
