For the past three years, a controversial streetcar has been connecting Jerusalem’s west with Jewish settlements in the city’s Palestinian eastern part. This public means of transport is a place of encounter between inhabitants, whether Israeli or Palestinian, pilgrims and tourists, religious and secular people. The Jewish Museum Hohenems takes its visitors on a journey through the city that is considered holy by Jews, Christians, and Muslims. A city, people from all over the world claim for themselves. A city, in which all conflicts of the past and present have their place.
