Kristina Wagner has starred on General Hospital since 1984 as the character Felicia. In 2011, she and her brother, Joe Crump, began production on Children of Internment, a documentary film due to be released in early 2014. The decision to evacuate and intern Germans, Japanese & Italians in America began at least five years before the attack on Pearl Harbor. J. Edgar Hoover had begun to compile the notorious ABC list. This list was created with concerns over national security and was originally aimed at Communists, Fascists, and Nazis. By the end of 1939, it had evolved into wartime hysteria.
It’s a common misperception that only Japanese Americans were interned during WWII. The German American wartime experience remains largely overlooked by historians and generally unknown to most Americans. It is important, when studying WWII internment to make distinctions between German-Americans, Japanese-Americans, and German Aliens who were not U.S. citizens. That’s what their film, Children of Internment is about.
