(with kind support by the Embassy of Ireland)

We are glad to announce the exhibition, „The children of the Operation Shamrock“ – a project of the journalist Monica Brandis assisted by the photographer Sidartha Corral and the graphic designer Frank Lietz. 

The exhibition shows 14 of the more than 400 children, that found refugee  in Ireland due to the „Operation Shamrock“ directly after WW II . A very closeness has arisen between the german children, most of them nowadays are more than 80 years old, and their irish guestfamilies and more than 50 children remained in Ireland.

The exhibition shows insights to this testimony of humanity and the german-irish friendship and points to a less known facet oft the german-irish relationship. 

We are glad that we are able to bring this exhibition to Bonn in 2019, with kind support by the Embassy of Ireland. Due to the current status this exhibition will be shown in Düsseldorf, too. There it will be supported by the Deutsch-Irische Gesellschaft Düsseldorf e.V.

Monica Brandis will open the exhibition and 2 of the then-children will paint their own exposition of the experiences as time-witnesses and are available for questions hereto.
