Anneliese Krauter will talk about her memoir From the Heart’s Closet: A Young Girl’s WWII Story which describes the turmoil of war as her German immigrant family is uprooted by FBI arrests, separations and detainments. Internment in the Crystal City Family Internment Camp in Texas and final repatriation to Germany in the midst of bombings and advancing fronts followed. The memoir ends as the family members manage to return to the US and the author at age nineteen begins a new life in Indianapolis with her husband, a member of the USAF whom she met and married in Germany.
