Texas historians preserving WWII internment camp

In this photo taken on Dec. 4, 2010, 85-year-old Eb Fuhr looks out a window of his home in Palatine, Ill. Fuhr's German-born parents emigrated to the U.S. when he was 3 and he grew up in Cincinnati where his father was a baker. Eight months after his parents and U.S.-born brother were seized in 1942, Fuhr was taken away by FBI agents who showed up at his high school in Cincinnati. "It was kind of a reunion," he said of joining his parents and brother at Crystal City. Fuhr would spend four years at the internment camp. At its peak in 1944, Crystal City was home for some 3,300 detainees, most of them German and Japanese. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)
