Name: From Cologne To Ballinlough

Subtitle: A German and Irish boyhood in World War II and post war years, 1946 - 49

Author: Remmel, Herbert

Editor:

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Aubane Historical Society

Published: 2009

ISBN:

Contents: This refreshingly unusual book is mainly about rural Ireland in the 1940s and it is full of fun, enjoyment, insights and sheer delight in everything about that society. It describes everything that the current literary establishment refuses to admit existed in that place at that time. But this author has no axe to grind, no agenda to follow.

Herbert Remmel's objectivity derives from the fact that he was an outsider who found himself in the middle of the society and writes atraightforwardly about what he experienced and the impressions made on him, and writes with great talent for vividly painting a variety of people and situations in a few sentences.

Herbert Remmel was one of the German children who was brought to Ireland after World War II by the Red Cross. His book begins with wartime life in Cologne and there is a graphic description of War and everyday life in a suburb of Cologne and further afield as experienced by a small child, his family and neighbours.

The rest of his book is a child's eye view of Ireland as he found it just after the War, and as such is a joy to read and a welcome release from current dogmas about the awfulness of life in rural Ireland then and since. It makes one want to invite more Germans here to spend some time and write about us because to paraphrase Kipling they would hopefully, like Herbert Remmel, come to know the real Ireland so well because they more than Ireland know.

Name: Hitler's English Inspirers

Subtitle:

Author: Sarkisyanz, Manuel

Editor:

Category: German-Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2003

ISBN: 0 85034 086 1

Contents: Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party did not come out of a vacuum—nor were they the only—evil—excrescences of a recalcitrant Germany/Austria. The Nazi leader is rightly reviled for his anti-Semitism, expansionism and genocide. But he did not originate these aberrations of Statecraft—neither the theory of them nor the practice. All had been features of the English family of nations—a family in which Hitler as a Teuton demanded a place. An ambition which very nearly succeeded under Neville Chamberlain. England did not become the major Superpower of the era by application of sweet reason. America existed by extermination of the Red Indians, Canada of the Innuit, Australia by the then ongoing destruction of the Aborigines; New Zealand ousted the Maoris—and the new colonisation project in Palestine was authorised by Britain just as Hitler was becoming receptive to geopolitical ideas. What Hitler planned to do in the western reaches of Russia was not different in kind from any of these: they all justified themselves by Social Darwinism. As the Ministerial English Liberal, Sir Charles Dilke, claimed: "the Anglo-Saxon is the only extirpating race on earth. Up to the commencement of the now inevitable destruction of the Red Indians?, of the Maoris and of the [aboriginal] Australians, no numerous race has ever been blotted out by an invader". Professor Sarkisyanz in this erudite and well-referenced work shows how Hitler, a convinced Anglophile, believed that Germany could be brought out of the Versailles slough of despond by emulating British methods of rule, of leadership training and of social conformity, to become an ally of the British Empire around the world. But that meant he had, amongst other things, to teach his Germans to replicate the mindset of his mentors. This book shows from Nazi sources how they—and their ideological forbears—were influenced by writers such as Carlyle (who proposed forced labour for Caribbean negroes and the regimentation of labour), Disraeli (a convinced racist), Houston Stewart Chamberlain (a race theorist who directly inspired Hitler's anti-Semitic genocide and was related to the British Establishment Chamberlains) and a host of others. Carthill—the senior British functionary in India, who extolled the efficacy of 'administrative massacre' to suppress revolt—helped to stimulate Nazi brutality. While Hitler certainly surpassed his inspirers, his action continued a well-charted direction. His downfall came because, having learned how to act from the British example, he did not know—unlike his mentors—when to stop.

Name: Iraq: Blair's Big Lie Confirmed

Subtitle:

Author: Morrison, David

Editor:

Category: General

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2005

ISBN: 1 874463 40 9

Contents: Second edition with Foreword by George Galloway MP, in which he says: "David Morrison is one of the most forensic but unsung writers in these islands. He has consistently tracked down the facts and unmasked the lies in New Labour's propaganda." This pamphlet shows how, in the months leading up to the invasion of Iraq, the Prime Minister continually stated that his objective was the disarmament of Iraq as laid down in Security Council resolutions, and not regime change. In fact, a year earlier, he had already offered his wholehearted support to President Bush in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

Name: Ireland After The End Of Western Civilisation

Subtitle:

Author: Fennell, Desmond

Editor:

Category: Irish Collection

Publisher: Athol Books

Published: 2009

ISBN: 978 08034 1201

Contents: The West’s present system of rules for individual and social behaviour has replaced that of inherited European civilisation. The new system could be designated ‘post-European’. It is a utopian experiment, originating in and emanating from the USA. In many ways it is a western parallel to the Soviet experiment, which was similarly post-European in origin.

Failing to make sense to westerners as a framework for life, our system has lasted until now merely because of the constant increase of the power to buy things and do things which it has been providing to states and consumers. When that dual increase ceases, it will dissolve into social chaos, leaving the task of building the widely desired post-European civilisation to a future generation.

Those are the bare bones of Desmond Fennell’s ground-breaking account of the recent history and present condition of the western world – an account which is given pressing relevance by the West’s economic crisis. It is also the context in which - in a series of essays dated and set in the weeks leading up to the Lisbon Treaty referendum of 2008 - he discusses the referendum campaigns; the European Union; the decline of the Catholic Church; Terry Keane and Charles Haughey; Irish Times and Irish people; confusion in Dublin’s art museums; Dundrum Shopping Centre; and other matters.
