If you tell me the "front desk" immigration officer asked this, I won't believe it. But if you tell me he was pulled aside and questioned more, then I can believe it. One would have to know when WWII took place in order to know whether to ask that question or not and I wouldn't be surprised if some of those guys don't know when WWII was.

Maybe he did not answer the question on the back of the form so the INS officer had to do it for him and to do that he would have to ask the question. I do not think that they would just ask to be funny or an A-hole because that area is under tight video and audio surveillance, it wouldn't be worth his job!

Maybe they are concerned with younger generation family members whom had parents or grandparents who were active Nazis, and believe the enterant may be seeing/supporting a wanted Nazi war criminal. Then again, maybe the agent flunked history in high school. Usually I find EWR's passport control to be very efficient, with no problems.

The questions on the I-94 waiver form are basically irrelevant in themselves, as no person is actually going to answer 'yes' to them - it just gives immigration authorities a clear-cut reason to deport you in the event that any of the answers are found to be false, particularly with regards to denied visa applications, etc. - as you've answered no to all those questions and signed your name to it they don't need to find any other reason to make you leave the country...
