Description
From 1942 to 1948, trains delivered thousands of Japanese, German, Italian immigrants and their American-born children to a family internment camp in Texas. Crystal City was the center of a government program called "quiet passage," under which hundreds were exchanged for more important Americans held behind enemy lines. Jan Jarboe Russell details a little-known story of how the definition of American citizenship changed under the pressure of war.
