Israel. Few words arouse such polarizing views and emotions. For
our trip to the Jewish state we want to offer something different to
that typically offered by, say, a mainstream tour operator: education. We want to discover the views and the mindsets of people of
various backgrounds in Israel – about themselves, their country,
and also about their connection to Germany. We will encounter
some Holocaust survivors and their descendants, meet young
Israelis still in their school years or studying at university, and
endeavour to examine our Western, outsider view of Israel and
Israelis, and consider its validity: is it reasonable; is it accurate?
By examining history and religion, as well as the modern state
with its high-tech sector, we want to deepen our understanding
and appreciation of the Israeli reality, in contrast with perceptions
of Israel widely espoused across Western Europe. This enhanced
appreciation is essential to grasping why a basic solidarity with
Israel is important for all democracies. As such, this trip is suited
not only to young people in general (between 18 to 40 years
old), but also for mainstream educators, such as teachers and
lecturers. As a team we would love to welcome you on this trip!
