When I started to think about how to share stories about the history of the Old City before Yom Yerushalayim, I decided to search for a personality.

Someone who knew stories of the past but was an integral part of the present-day history of the Old City. I set out to find someone who was in the Old City in 1967 and still living in the Jewish Quarter today.
