I have the official Imperial War Museum dvd of WW1, and there is a small clip of shops being damaged due to the owners being of German descent.
I seem to notice these sort of clips being mentioned in many WW1 programs being currently shown.
Maybe one day, someone will make a documentary of the civilians  who were interned during WW1, due to their heritage..... now that would make great watching :)

Once you have found the person, the bottom right hand corner, gives a reference to the page on the register, on this one it is: Alld XLIII (43). Underneath it has 42, which will be the 42nd of Alld XLIII. Enter those numbers and hey presto, there's your person and their internment history

I'm currently reading a book titled 'Boy Soldiers of the Great War', and I came across this little story, it's a 14 year old boy recalling a night in Hull, in June 1915 after a zeppelin raid:

'There were at least three big fires and much damage, including Edwin Davis' shop, near Holy Trinity Church, which was destroyed. There was much excitement and no doubt people were fearful and angry. It was Sunday night and a number of people attacked GERMAN PORK BUTCHERS' shops, one in Charles Street.

A policeman who attempted to protect a German shop from the maddened crowd was chased down the street and was lucky to escape'.

Hello all you descendants of German pork butchers,
I would like to inform you about a special event that takes place in the first week of August this year. I am organising the 2nd Great German Pork Butcher Descendants' Reunion in Hohenlohe, the area where most of your forefathers came from. You are all warmly invited. The four day meeting combines the historical background with an interesting culinary, cultural and sightseeing programme.
If you are interested, please send me a personal message with your e-mail address and I will send you the programme, cost and payment details and a booking form. After having received the latter you may still decide if you want to take part or not.

Best wishes
