GERMAN WORLD ALLIANCE
ELLIS ISLAND:WHERE IT BEGAN AND WHERE IT ENDED
On December 8, 2009, the 68th anniversary of the internment of the first German Americans under the U. S. Government’s Alien Enemy Control Program, the German World Alliance, in co-operation with the National Park Service and the support of the German American Internee Coalition (ww.gaic.info), Maj. A.D. Jacob’s of foiimes.com, The Steuben Society and many other German-American organizations, will host a conference entitled “WHERE IT BEGAN AND WHERE IT ENDED.”
The conference will be held from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Ellis Island, in the lecture hall above the Great Hall.The conference will offer an overview of the Department of Justice internment program, from pre-war planning, to its inception on December 8, 1941 through its end on Ellis Island in 1948, three years after the end of World War II.Talks by former internees will be supported by maps, videos, internment memorabilia and photos of Ellis Island and other World War II internment camps.
The conference will commemorate the thousands of German and Italian Americans and German and Italian Latin Americans who were interned and highlight the fact that their internment remains unknown.It is hoped that Congress will finally pass the Wartime Treatment Study Act which would create an independent commission to analyze the facts and circumstances surrounding the internment of German and Italian Americans and Latin Americans.
All former internees and their families are encouraged to attend. The general public is welcome to join former internees and learn about this unknown aspect of Ellis Island’s and America’s history.
