German-speaking Exiles in Ireland 1933-1945 is a pioneering study of the impact the German-speaking exiles of the Hitler years had on Ireland as the first large group of immigrants in the country in the twentieth century. It therefore adds an important yet hitherto virtually unknown Irish dimension to international exile studies. After providing an overview of the topic and an analysis of current developments in exile studies the volume devotes two chapters to Jewish refugees and another to the considerable number of Austrian exiles, investigates the relationship between Irish government policy and public opinion, and explores the problems of identity faced by so many in exile. It then focuses on some eminent refugees - Erwin Schroedinger, Ludwig Bieler, Robert Weil, Ernst Scheyer, and Hans Sachs - before concluding with personal accounts by Ruth Braunizer (the daughter of Erwin Schroedinger, excerpts from whose diaries are published here for the first time), Monica Schefold (the daughter of John Hennig), and Eva Gross. The fourteen contributors to the volume are Wolfgang Benz, Ruth Braunizer, John Cooke, Horst Dickel, Eva Gross, Gisela Holfter, Dermot Keogh, Wolfgang Muchitsch, Siobhan O'Connor, Hermann Rasche, Monica Schefold, Birte Schulz, Raphael V. Siev, and Colin Walker.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...this is an excellent volume. [...] This may be a first step for Irish Exile Studies: from it lessons can be learnt." - in: Modern Language Review 102/3 (2007) "Der vorl. Band sieht sich als "ersten Schritt" in eine Terra incognita, ist aber in Wirklichkeit ein Riesenschritt in eine wichtige Forschungsrichtung." - in: Germanistik 47/3-4 (2006) "Das Buch [...] verbindet in vortrefflicher Form klassisch-akademische Forschung und Memoirs. Daruber hinaus ist es ein (auch fur Nicht-Experten!) ausserst lesenswertes Beispiel von Grundlagenforschung und hoffentlich erst der Anfang weiterer Untersuchungen auf diesem Gebiet." - in: Feuchtwanger Newsletter Rundbrief 4 (2006) "Holfter's organisation strikes a good balance between the material and the result is a sensitive and well contextualised account of exile at a dark moment in European history." - in: Irish Economic and Social History XXXIV (2007), pp. 124-126
