Many of the exhibits inside the Traces Bus-eum were collected by Michael Luick-Thrams, while travelling throughout Germany. The bus-eum provided a movie and stories from POWs from World War II. During WWII the U.S. government interned approximately 15,000 German-Americans. The three goals of the bus-eum include exhibits on how both Americans and Germans experienced life in camps, the effects of Nazism before WWII, and Midwesterners responses to Nazi Persecution, refugees, and the Holocaust.
