Dublin Nazi No.1 - The life of Adolf Mahr

...
Dublin Nazi No.1 is a revealing biography by Gerry Mullins of the extraordinary life of Dr Adolf Mahr, who was head of the National Museum of Ireland and also the head of the Nazi Party in Ireland.
...
In the 1930s, Dr Adolf Mahr was head of the National Museum of Ireland, where he earned the title the father of Irish archaeology. He was also the head of the Nazi Party in Ireland, and was dubbed Dublin Nazi No. 1. Under pressure from Irish and British military intelligence, he left for Germany shortly before the outbreak of war in 1939, never to return. To this day, he is considered in some circles to have been a spy who used his position at the museum to help prepare Germany's invasion plan of Ireland.
During the war, he became director of Irland-Redaktion, the German propaganda radio service that broadcast into neutral Ireland. He was later arrested and tortured by the British, and upon his release tried to return to Ireland, but to no avail. He remains one of the most controversial figures in twentieth-century Irish history.

Bender, who lived in America, significantly added to the collections of the National Museum, where Mahr was the first Keeper of Irish Antiquities and later Director.

...
However, Mahr seemed to have little difficulty with individual Jews. Jewish children played in the Mahr home and Mahr exchanged letters throughout the Thirties with philanthropist Albert Bender in San Francisco.
...
When the Nazis invaded Austria, Mahr wrote to Bender several times to see if Bender could help one of Mahr's Jewish friends get out of Austria and to safety in the US.
...
Eventually I was put on the phone to a man who told me that Mahr had been director, that he had been considered a spy, that he was a Nazi and that he escaped from Ireland to Germany just before war broke out.
...
It is startling today to see groups of young Irish and German boys and girls lined up in military format with a Swastika above their heads, arms outstretched in a Nazi salute, with Adolf Mahr at their head.
Mahr, who made an important contribution to Ireland's cultural life, left Ireland for Germany with his family in August 1939 to attend a seminar but got stranded there when the war began and was never to return to Ireland. During the war, Mahr became head of Irland-Redaktion, the Nazi regime's propaganda radio service, which broadcast into neutral Ireland.
After Germany's surrender, Mahr was arrested and spent time in a British prisoner-of-war camp. On his release, he tried to return to Ireland - but despite a well-mounted campaign by friends and personal begging letters to Eamon de Valera (which were ignored) he remained in Germany where he died in 1951, aged 64. To this day, he is considered in some circles to have been a spy who used his position at the National Museum to help prepare Germany's invasion plan of Ireland.
In the Thirties, Ireland - like most of Europe - was politically confused, with the Irish branch of the Nazi party being completely above board. Accounts of the group's Christmas parties were carried in national newspapers - and Irish Times editor RM Smylie even attended some of the Nazi parties.
