Hubert Butler (1900-1991) is a forgotten Irish hero. In 1938-39 he traveled to the Nazi Third Reich to help Jews escape persecution. While he ultimately helped save 150 people from the holocaust, he was not celebrated in Ireland. Instead after he revealed how the Catholic Church was involved in supporting the Nazi allies in Yugoslavia he suffered what was in effect internal exile.
