Overview

This incredible story - based on detailed research in Germany, Ireland and Britain - uncovers for the first time one of the most sensitive issues concerning Irish-German relations in the Second World War. From December 1939 to May 1945, German Radio broadcast Nazi propaganda to neutral Ireland. From small beginnings featuring a weekly talk in Irish, the broadcasts from Berlin grew into a nightly bi-lingual service in Irish and English. The man behind the plan to target Irish listeners - as well as Irish groups in America and Australia - was Dr Adolf Mahr, the Austrian-born director of the National Museum in Dublin. A member of the Nazi Party, he was promoted to the top museum job in 1934. Mahr left Dublin in 1939, never to return. Officially on leave of absence from his job with the Irish Civil Service, he spent the war years in Berlin working on the Irish desk at the German Foreign Office, as well as establishing and directing German Radio's nightly Irish Service, known as the Irland-Redaktion. Hitler's Irish Voices tells the story of Mahr and the rest of his colleagues who worked for the Irland-Redaktion. It traces their backgrounds, the various paths that led them to wartime Berlin, and tells what became of them after the war. The book examines in detail the reasons for the establishment of the radio service, what it broadcast, and who listened to it.

    Hitler's Irish Voices: The Story of German Radio's Wartime Irish Service

    I really enjoyed this publication. I have an interest in Ireland myself and also WW2 and I must say the author seemed to have done a very thorough job in researching this subject matter. Additionally, it didn't come across as an urbane, stodgy book and my girlfriend found it as easy to read (and WW2 isn't high on her list of interests !!!). Well done, Dr. O'Donoghue, on a greatly researched and entertaining piece of work ! The fact that all of this actually happened makes it even more readable !

    Hitler's Irish Voices: The Story of German Radio's Wartime Irish Service

    I only had a passing interest in the subject matter (German spies in Irelnd during the Second World War) but I was VERY impressed in the way Dr. O'Donoghue tackled it. His writing style was detalied and very informative, yet at the same time laid out in such a way as to make the matter read as enjoyably as a really good novel. The adventures of Mr. Hartmann etc. are all the more compelling because they are all genuine. The book was also very well researched and the fact that Dr. O'Donoghue was able to interview as many of the surviving individuals as possible gives the publication a very genuine and realistic feel to it. This is a MUST READ and I cannot recommend it highly enough !!!
