The Presentation of Germany in Israeli History Textbooks between 1948 and 2014
Kizel, Arie
Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, v7 n1 p94-115 Mar 2015
This article reviews an extensive study of Israeli secondary school general history curricula and textbooks since the establishment of the state in 1948 until the present day. By analyzing the way in which Germany is presented in various contexts, the findings of the study indicate that, while the textbooks reflect a shift from an early censorious attitude to a factual approach, the curriculum continues to present national Jewish Zionism as the metanarrative. In this context, Germany is framed as a victimizer.
