Detained In America: The Selective Relocation of German-Americans and German Aliens During WWII, was the original title of my final paper in 2011 at California State University Northridge. Last week, October 9, 2014 we screened, 'Children Of Internment', the film version of this paper I wrote for CSUN.

Our first interview was in May 2012. I flew out to Indiana and we drove up to Chicago to meet Eberhard at the Ellis House. This was the house he was detained in 1943 with his brother, Julius, after they were arrested for "suspicion" in Cincinnati.
The house is currently privately owned. We were lucky the homeowner was so gracious and interested in this story. After the interview we drove through Chicago, Read More >>

In 1924, J. Edgar Hoover was appointed director of the FBI by the Attorney General, Harlan F. Stone.

He believe he had a mandate to intrude into peoples' lives. He understood better Read More >>
We did it.
We had our first private screening of Children Of Internment at the Chinese Theater.
It was an honor to host the evening for the cast and internees that gave us incredible interviews for the project.
A very special thank you to all of them. I would also like to thank the family and friends who also joined us in a full auditorium.
After the final credits we had a sip of peppermint schnapps and then went to the Wirtshaus restaurant on La Brea Ave. in Hollywood for some schnitzel.

We WILL be releasing it for public screenings as soon as we can and we are excited that so many of you are interested in seeing it. Thank you for all your love and support.
