About this collection

The Crystal City Collection documents a detention camp for Japanese in Crystal City, Texas, formed secretly to gather and house Japanese, German and Italian citizens in the United States and Latin America, to be used for prisoner exchange for Americans and others in Japanese detention. This distinguishes it from "relocation" camps, which were largely for American citizens of Japanese descent.
