Ireland Denies Hiding Nazis; Terms Charge ‘ridiculous’

Download PDF for this date

A spokesman for the Eire Department of Justice today called “ridiculous” charges that Ireland was one of the main international Nazi centers. The charges were voiced by Joel Brand who was involved in negotiations during the war with Adelf Eichmann for an exchange of doomed Hungarian Jews for trucks.

Mr. Brand had charged in an interview with the London Daily Mail that Ireland was a center of Nazi activity and passport forgeries by which former high-ranking Nazis were enabled to seek refuge in Arab countries.
