When the people that work in the Internment Camps they get &12 for a month af 48-hour week i think that is too small for them because what if the have a lot family to take care of.

Arthur D. Jacobs
I remember. Yes, I remember when I was in an internment camp in Southwest Texas. The Crystal City Family Internment Camp it was called.

There I sat, played, and went to school with Japanese Americans and German Americans. There were hundreds of American-born children of both Japanese and German ancestesty in this camp.

Why is it that I only read of the Japanese American children, and not of the German American children?

It was an opportunity to meet Japanese, while we Germans were interned with them in Crystal City, Texas Internment Camp. We were able to play fast pitch softball,basketball, and soccer against the Peruvian Japanese there as well. All these were shared vissisitudes of boredom, lost freedom, destroyed and interrupted careers, surrounded by 12' fences and guard towers replete with machine- gunned guards.Only war's ending could end the prison sentence, but for me it ended only after September 1947, fully 2 years later. It was nevertheless an opportunity to meet Japanese and to absorb some of their rich culture.
