RTÉ’s programme, Witnesses to War, was overdue. Why did it take so long to be made?
Was it to appease the IRA, while they murdered people for a ‘united Ireland’? For the many Irish who saw beyond the nation state and defended European democracy, this belated recognition is too late. A friend told me that when he returned from World War II, he went to the Savoy Cinema in Dublin, where a newsreel showed the horrors of a concentration camp. He heard cinema-goers say it was British propaganda. That was unsurprising, as Éamon de Valera had just signed a book of condolence for Adolf Hitler.
