Jerusalem as Modern City: A Virtual Tour of the German Colony and Baka
Hosted By: Qesher
When someone thinks of Jerusalem, they usually imagine ancient holy sites. Yet, Jerusalem is also a living modern city, with all its challenges and beauties. Join a virtual walk starting from the middle of the 19th century, when the first residents of the Old City left its medieval alleys and settled outside of the walls, and newcomers came and brought a modern and new way of life. This process of modernization, stretching through different political landscapes and an ever-changing human mosaic of religions, ethnic identities and languages, has been going on since then. Learn about two iconic neighborhoods to discover some of the characteristics of this process more in-depth, through stories and personal impressions.
