The late Zionism of Martin Buber, Hugo Bergmann and Gershom Scholem

The project isolates the responses of Buber, Bergmann and Scholem to Israel’s founding in the 1940s and yearly 1950: at the moment of its occurrence and its immediate aftermath, with the  two following aims: (1) Integrating documentary sources to create a detailed and broad picture of the trio’s political activism and personal reactions to events as they were unfolding; (2) Evaluate the features of their Zionist ideology in the 1940s and early 1950s. I gave several conference papers on this topic in 2022, which I will publish in the course of 2023-2024.
