Yaacov Shavit et al., « Qui criait au loup ? Comment Zeev Jabotinsky perçut-il l’Allemagne nazie et son projet ? », Revue d’Histoire de la Shoah, ID : 10670/1.3v436c
Both Israeli historians concentrate on proving what, according to them, is nothing but a myth created by adepts of revisionist Zionism : the legend of an extra-clairvoyant Jabotinsky who foresaw the rise of Nazi Germany and the fate of European Jewry.Quoting chapter and verse, they try to prove a contrario Jabotinsky’s ambiguity, i.e. his alternating between well-founded inquietude concerning the fate of the Jews, and his catastrophic underestimation of Nazi Germany’s warplans, which was then proved justified. This being said, Jabotinsky’s position can only be understood in the global contemporary European context, one which includes especially Poland ; not just in a theoretical Jewish-German confrontation.
