Video: Life in the Old City of Jerusalem

The ancient part of Jerusalem has a side that is unknown to many: in its hidden alleys live the residents of the Old City. They have their own customs, schools, a market and their own typical foods.

The houses attached to each other and are small. The Nowisser family warmly welcomes us into their home. The family of eight, who lives in an apartment a little more than 80 square meters in surface area, tells about everyday life inside the walls of Jerusalem.
