Abstract

The article examines exhibitions on the 1948 War in three museums: the 1947–48 Etzel Museum, the Haganah Museum, and the Israeli Museum at the Yitzhak Rabin Center, which opened in 1992, 2001, and 2010, respectively. Established at different times and by different political entities these exhibitions represent various outlooks and “communicate” with each other on narratives of 1948 concerning sensitive issues and events, and thus enable us to compare their varied approaches to the way the war is presented in both content and timeframe, albeit without expressing an opinion on the content or examining its historical validity.
