This study examines the relationship between two European powers : Nazi Germany and Great Britain and two main elements of the Palestinian Question before 1948: Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism. It explores German policy, particularly the Ha’arava Agreements, toward two major Palestinian crises that began in 1936. These crises were turning point in the modern history of Palestine. The first crisis involved the increase of the Jewish immigration to Palestine from Germany after Hitler rose to power. The second was the Palestinian demand for national independence like other Arab countries in the area. The views of Nazi Germany concerning Palestine are important to an understanding of the struggle and how Britain dealt with it.
