Adolf makes it to the Emerald Isle

Postby Von Schadewald on 06 Apr 2005 22:24

The only two countries that offered condolences to the German people on the death of Hitler were Argentina and Ireland. Peron & De Valera were both big Germanophiles and sympathetic towards Hitler.

If Hitler had escaped to Buenos Aires or Dublin, claiming asylum, would they have refused to hand him over to the vengeful allies, or at least delay by years his extradition? Or would the Allies dare to actually invade to extract him? I don't think they would.

No.
The Allies could bring so much diplomatic, and if need be, economic pressure on either of these two countries, that they wouldn't even consider letting him claim asylum.

No

Eamon de Valera was not crazy.

Ireland is too close to the UK... The Commandos could pay a visit to him (Skorzeny like) and question over.

No. Ireland is not the place to hide, if you're Adolf Hitler.
