Description: The dramatic and never-before-told story of a secret FDR-approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II, where thousands of familiesâ€”many US citizensâ€”were incarcerated. From 1942 to 1948, trains delivered thousands of civilians from the United States and Latin America to Crystal City, Texas, a small desert town at the southern tip of Texas. The trains carried Japanese, German, Italian immigrants and their American-born children. The only family internment camp during World War II, Crystal City was the center of a government prisoner exchange program called â€œquiet passage.â€ During the course of the war, hundreds of prisoners in Crystal City, including their American-born children, were exchanged for other more important Americansâ€”diplomats, businessmen, soldiers, physicians, and missionariesâ€”behind enemy lines in Japan and Germany. Focusing her story on two American-born teenage girls who were interned, author Jan Jarboe Russell uncovers the details of their years spent in the camp the struggles of their fathers their familiesâ€™ subsequent journeys to war-devastated Germany and Japan and their years-long attempt to survive and return to the United States, transformed from incarcerated enemies to American loyalists. Their stories of day-to-day life at the camp, from the ten-foot high security fence to the armed guards, daily roll call, and censored mail, have never been told. Combining big-picture World War II history with a little-known event in American history that has long been kept quiet, The Train to Crystal City reveals the war-time hysteria against the Japanese and Germans in America, the secrets of FDRâ€™s tactics to rescue high-profile POWs in Germany and Japan, and how the definition of American citizenship changed under the pressure of war.
