This year is the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, which took place during the 1967 Six Day War. Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel, the holiest city in Judaism and its Jewish connection dates back to the time of King David, circa 1000BCE. But it is also the holiest site for Christianity and the 3rd holiest site for Islam. Come and explore why to this day it has been one of the most fought after and contentious cities in the history of humanity.
