Jerusalem of Stone

Guided Tour for Children Aged 10-11 on the Cultural History of Jerusalem's Walls

The light limestone gleams golden in the sun. Jerusalem's Meleke stone is a distinctive part of the city's image. Many walls in Jerusalem are built out of this stone, including the Wailing Wall, which was formerly the western wall of the second Jewish Temple.

Where

Old Building, ground level, “Meeting Point” in the foyer
Lindenstraße 9–14, 10969 Berlin

Taking Jerusalem as a center of three major world religions, we trace the cultural history of its walls. We examine the cemetery walls as well as the old city wall, the newer Israeli security barriers, and metaphorical walls. Walls are powerful rulers, for they affect people’s lives and are highly ambiguous – one person’s protection is another person's menace.
