Book description
A new edition of the book with about 80 B&W pictures and epilogue. "'Our Jerusalem ' is a chronicle of an American family in the Holy Land and a unique account of recent past in a city riven by conflict. Bertha Vester (1878-1968) saw life in Jerusalem intimately, first as a child growing up in the Old City and later as a leading figure in the community founded by her parents. Her family left Chicago in 1881 after a series of personal tragedies. . She lived through the last days of Turkish rule, two World Wars, the British Mandate, the painful birth of Isreal and the Six Day War. Amoung her aquaintances were 'Chinese' Gordon, Mark Twain, General Allenby, T.E Lawrence, Winston Churchil and Herbert Samuel, to name a few. 'Our Jerusalem' recreates, in a personal document, the character of that eventful city." - refers to 1988 edition
