INTERNMENT OF ITALIAN AMERICANS
Wednesday, July 18th, 6:00pm
 
During World War II, Italian Americans were required to register as enemy aliens and forbidden from speaking Italian in public. Confiscation of property, house arrests, relocation, curfews and internment were things Italian Americans wanted to forget following the end of WWII.
