Presentation of the Results of the Austrian-Israeli Textbook Committee

Vienna

In 2017, Austria and Israel established the Austrian-Israeli Textbook Committee with the aim to analyze its history, civic education and geography textbooks, and to deepen the Austrian-Israeli exchange in the field of education. The Austrian textbooks were specifically analyzed in regard to how Jewish history and present antisemitism are presented and how Israel is presented in the context of the Middle East conflict. After four years of debate, exchange and analysis, the results and recommendations of the Austrian-Israeli Textbook Committee will be presented on 27 January 2022 in Vienna.
