March of the Titans (29)

The following sentence of chapter 29 of March of the Titans: A History of the White Race by Arthur Kemp caught my attention:

Ireland – civil war and emigration

After writing about Ancient Ireland—a name derived from “Aryan”—, St. Patrick, the Viking raids and settlements, the Anglo-Norman occupation, the Reformation, increased English settlements and the seeds of hatred sown, the English Law and the Irish Rebellion where 30,000 English were slaughtered, Cromwell’s invasion, the Penal Laws and the destruction of Irish economy, the continued dissent and Catholics denied the vote, the union between Ireland and Great Britain, the potato famine and a population that declined by 2 million, the Easter Rebellion, and the Independence, a passage about how Ireland condoled Hitler’s death caught my attention:

Officially, Ireland remained neutral during the Second World War, but in reality the island split—many Irish worked in British factories, replacing British men called up for active service, while others either openly sympathized with Germany or actively tried to aid the German war effort. In this way Eire became the only country in Europe to send an official telegram of condolence to Germany after the death of Hitler in April 1945.
