Between 2011 and 2014, the German-Israeli Textbook Commission studied over 400 German and Israeli history, geography and social studies textbooks to ascertain the ways in which they depicted the other country in each case and to examine the representation of the Holocaust in history textbooks from both countries. The textbook analyses and detailed interim reports1 produced by the various specialist working groups within the Commission provided the basis for the findings presented in this book and the recommendations drawn from them on the depiction of Israel in textbooks from Germany and of Germany in Israeli textbooks.

1 The publication of the interim reports on is planned for the autumn of 2015.
