The Carl and Anna Fuhr family immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1927 and 1928 and settled in Cincinnati, In 1940 they were told by the Naturalization Service and the FBI to register at the post office.

Then in 1942 they were taken into custody. Without a hearing they were ordered into internment. They boarded a train and headed to their "new" in Crystal City Texas. And their crime....they were German immigrants during WWII!! The camp was like a prison. Fences were 12 " high and guards towers every 50 yards!!

There is much more to this story. Please join Mr. Eberhard Fuhr, their son, to hear the rest of the story! He will give his talk on Sunday July 30 at the Versailles High Preforming Arts Center at 2:00

This event is sponsored by the Versailles Area Historical Society. Mr. Fuhr has a local connection, as he is Rosemary Paulus' cousin

This event is free and open to the public! Our Museum will be closed on July 30th so our volunteers may attend this special program.

Come and hear about this time of our history!!
