Arthur Jacobs (MS 52)

Major Arthur "Art" Jacobs, USAF retired, has gathered a collection of materials, many based on personal experience, about the domestic internment of German Americans during World War II. Many of the items have been gathered in conjunction with the publication of his book, The Prison Called Hohenasperg: An American Boy Betrayed by His Government during World War II. The collection consists of an extensive series of documentation relating to the internment of permanent resident aliens and American citizens of German descent by the government during World War II.
