From the earliest years of the Nazi regime, Zionist movements in Germany worked to encourage immigration to Eretz Israel (Mandatory Palestine). This model, presenting two different periods in Eretz Israel, was displayed in an exhibition on Eretz Israel that took place in Berlin in 1934. The exhibition was produced as part of a concerted effort to encourage Jews, particularly the youth, to undergo pioneer training (Hachshara) in order to acquire skills that would be useful in their life in Eretz Israel. The exhibition was organized by the Zionist Federation of Germany, and was visited by some 20,000 people.
