Canada moved to denaturalize and deport a man accused of assisting in the mass murder of Jews as an SS guard during World War II. Josef Furman, an 83-year-old resident of Edmonton, Alberta, is alleged to have been part of the Trawniki guard, a unit responsible for hundreds of anti-Jewish operations that included the execution of 40,000 Jewish inmates in three concentration camps and the routing of a train from Theresienstadt to Auschwitz carrying 1,200 Jewish children.
