Yes, they did, but it was loosely enforced. The area where my parents
lived had many Germans. My Chicago neighborhood was known as the
"Nordseit" (sp!), and still has remnants of the old country. Some of
these Germans were taken in for questioning (one of them was later my
parents' landlord), and they were afraid (some of them "Americanized"
their last names), but I don't think there was any widespread
prosecution of Germans.
I think you're mixing up the Germans with the Japanese. Now they were
treated like criminals, rounded up into "camps" in California. A lot
of them were second and third generation American citizens; their only
crime was their nationality. Sounds to me like some of the routine was
learned from the enemy the United States was fighting in Europe, Nazi
I don't remember how it was resolved, but some Japanese sued the United
States government for their imprisionment. A man I worked with was
only ten years old when he and his family got arrested and thrown
somewhere. When they returned to their home a couple of years later,
everything was gone, including his new bike.
This was wrong. I don't think they landed one Japanese spy out of the
whole group that got incarcerated.
