Jerusalem: City Between Religions
60 min

Perhaps no world city holds more beautiful and holy connotations, yet has witnessed more bloodshed over the last 2,000 years than Jerusalem. With Islam, Judaism and Christianity all wishing to claim it for their own, Jerusalem's storied and holy history is both a blessing and a curse. Director Georg Graffe profiles the place in this fascinating documentary, "Sites of the World's Cultures: Jerusalem City Between Religions" (1997), exploring the tenuous nature of the city's complicated position in the world.
