After years of unsuccessful attempts, the United States finally deported Nazi collaborator Jakiw Palij on Tuesday morning to Germany, where his fate is currently unknown, although German prosecutors have previously said there may not be sufficient evidence to charge the 95-year-old with war crimes.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement carried out the 2004 order of deportation for Palij, a former SS guard at the Trawniki labor camp in Poland, which was part of “Operation Reinhard,” when the Nazis murdered as many as 2 million Polish Jews between October 1941 and November 1943. On Nov. 3, 1943, the Nazis shot approximately 6,000 Jewish inmates to death.
