Educating the public about our WW II internment has been a primary goal since the German American Internee Coalition was founded in 2005. Our members have participated in conferences, lectures, and book talks. We’ve worked on projects to develop exhibits and preserve historical internment sites.  We’ve been interviewed for newspaper articles, books, and documentaries. Here are some of those events, past and present.
