Legislative Efforts

toward U.S. Government Review and Evaluation of WW II Treatment of Civilians of German and Italian Ethnicity


To prevent possible future erosion of our civil liberties, the German American Internee Coalition believes the federal government must fully review and acknowledge its wartime civil liberties violations. The U.S. government has never comprehensively reviewed the German and Italian American experience, however through constituent vocalizations, some legislative efforts have been made toward these ends.
