Abstract

This article discusses the representation of history in the first textbooks of Jewish history published in Palestine under the influence of the Zionist movement. Three different historical representations of the nation are discussed: the national-religious (Jawitz), the political-Zionist (Ben-Yehudah), and the cultural-Zionist (Azar and Braunstein). The different historical representations of Jewish history differ significantly from the representation of history in textbooks published in the Enlightenment period, among other things in the use of language and historical periodization.
