German kids sent to Ireland WWII

Dr Kathleen Murphy, a well known pediatrician from Dublin, founded the ‚Save the German Children Society’ with a group of like minded people. Its purpose was to raise money and to find Irish families willing to give a temporary home to German children in order to bring them back to health. Many German children were severely traumatized and had lost one or both parents during the war. They were mal-nourished and sickly and their chances of surviving in a country lacking both food and fuel were slim. Many Irish families volunteered, but the Irish government and the Allies were skeptical at first. Compassion for Germany was not running high. Dr. Kathleen Murphy finally received permission from the British government and the Allied Control Council to begin her work.

The Irish Red Cross was responsible for co-ordinating the task which was dubbed ‚Operation Shamrock’. 462 German children from North Rhine West Phalia, the Bristish occupied zone, between ages 3 and 10 came to live with families throughout Ireland.

By 1949 most of the German children had been sent back to their families, but about ‚50 of the children from Operation Shamrock’ stayed in Ireland for good.

Journalist Monica Brandis interviewed 18 of the ‚Shamrock Children’ still alive. These are their stories.

On the 16th March at 19.00 there will be a conversation with Monica Brandis and a Shamrock child to launch the photo-exhibition. This event is sponsored by Dr. Susan Walsh of the Globe business college Munich

Colm Tóibín reading Nora Webster

Colm Tóibín is one of the most important Irish writers of our time. Colm Tóibín is an Irish novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright, journalist, critic and poet. Tóibín is currently Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University. He was hailed as a champion of minorities as he collected the 2011 Irish PEN Award. In 2011, he was named one of Britain’s Top 300 Intellectuals by The Observer. In 2015, he was awarded the Hawthornden Prize for Nora Webster.

This Friday he will launch his book, Nora Webster, in the Literature house Munich in the Saal, follow this link for tickets.

The setting is Enniscorthy, in Ireland, in the late 1960s, and Nora Webster’s husband, Maurice, has recently died. When the novel opens, Nora’s next-door neighbour stops her on her way inside the house, commiserating with her over all the well-wishers calling in. “You must be fed up of them,” he says. “Will they never stop coming?” Even as he commiserates, he is clearly part of the problem, waiting for the response she doesn’t want to supply, pressuring her to give away how she is feeling. “They mean well. People mean well,” Nora says.

Moderation: Julika Griem

Reading of the German text: Wiebke Puls

Event in English and German

Admission: € 10.- / 7.-
