Teaching German During World War I
During World War I school districts around the country stopped teaching German, “the language of the kaiser.” This article from the 5 January 1918 issue of the Arcadia Journal(near Los Angeles) reports one such action. Textbooks were “interned for the period of the war.”
Elsewhere cities with German names found new ones.
