The most important architects who were involved in the construction of the State of Israel and who had a decisive influence on its modern architecture had learned at the Bauhaus in Dessau. Some of them had come to Germany from Palestine specifically to study, others had to emigrate from Nazi Germany in the early 1930s. In Israel, they worked as educators – for example, on the new design of the famous Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem – designing buildings for the kibbutzim, planning cities or, like Arieh Sharon, even settling the whole country. In its current issue, the magazine of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation examines their stories and the manifold after-effects. In the process, a completely new view of the weighty influence of the Bauhaus on the State of Israel emerges.
