“Friends,” by Iris Cohenian

Muslim girls chat on the roof of the Austrian Hospice of the Holy Family, a popular place to see friends in the Old City of Jerusalem. The hospice opened its doors in 1863 for pilgrims. Today, it is a guesthouse that aims to bring together different cultures through art and music.
