The German-Americans and World War II

An Ethnic Experience


Timothy J. Holian

The German-Americans and World War II: An Ethnic Experience is a unique study of America's largest ethnic group during one of its most difficult periods. Focusing on Cincinnati, Ohio as a center of German-American life, the author utilizes original source material and first-hand interviews to present the first detailed account of the German-American experience during the years leading up to and through World War II. Topics discussed include the arrest and internment of German legal resident aliens and German-Americans, as enemy aliens; media portrayals of the German-American element during the war era; and an overview of German-American efforts to gain formal recognition of their wartime ordeal.
