Conrad Schick – The German Protestant Who Built 19th Century Jerusalem

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel

Anyone who has wandered the streets of downtown Jerusalem is likely familiar with the work of Conrad Schick.

The beautiful landmark buildings that this German Protestant missionary-turned-architect designed during the 19th century still stand today, offering a unique European twist to the city’s special character. Some examples include the Bikur Holim Hospital, the Mea Shearim neighborhood as well as Hansen House in Talbiya. Few people have had such an impact on the face of one of the world’s most famous cities.
