Abstract

During WWI, German-Americans were the targets of harassment and discrimination. In this article, Professor Finkelman discusses the conditions for foreigners in America leading up to and during the war that created the backlash against immigrants. Further, Finkelman discusses the lasting effects of German culture repression, including the disappearance of Germans as a distinct ethnic group in America.
