Born in Leverkusen/Germany in 1925, Eberhard Fuhr grew up in Cincinnati/Ohio until his parents, two brothers and he were interned--first in Chicago, then at Camp Crystal City (Texas) and finally at Ellis Island, where they were not released until September 1947, after being threatened repeatedly with deportation after the Second World War ended. A retired business man and a widow, in fall 2006 "Eb" toured with the BUS-eum 2 and spoke to about 1,800 school kids and others at about 20 stops across the Upper Midwest. Here he poses with TRACES Center for History and Culture executive director--and BUS driver--Michael Luick-Thrams.
