Nazi POW Camps in America

Offered by: George H. W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum (4
Program Description:
Join us for a fascinating presentation by world renowned World War 2 expert Dr. Arnold Kramer. Dr. Kramer delivers fantastic insight about Nazi POW camps in America. Listen as he describes how the United States government detained nearly half a million Nazi Prisoners of War from 1942 through 1945. Krammer describes how, with no precedents upon which to form policy, America's handling of these foreign prisoners led to the hasty conversation of CCC camps, high school gyms, local fairgrounds, and race tracks to serve as holding areas. Join us afterwards for a Q&A session with Dr. Kramer!
