In this letter, dated January 27, 1946, from interned German national Richard Auras to Governor William Langer, Auras writes that he is not satisfied with the decision to deny his request to be released from Fort Lincoln. He argues that due process has not been followed, and describes his time in the United States as a member of society in his personal and professional lives.
Auras was arrested on December 8, 1941 by the US government under the Alien Enemy Act of 1798 and interned at Fort Lincoln, south of Bismarck, ND.
