Lecture by Simon Montefiore

As part of the Division of Cultural, Solidarity and Creativity Affairs in the Office of External Relations the IDB Cultural Center, in collaboration with the Embassy of Israel, presents the UK historian Simon Sebag Montefiore in a discussion and signing of his epic history JERUSALEM: THE BIOGRAPHY.

How did this small, remote town become the Holy City, the “center of the world” and now the key to peace in the Middle East? In a gripping narrative, Simon Sebag Montefiore reveals this ever-changing city in its many incarnations, bringing every epoch and character blazingly to life. Jerusalem’s biography is told through the wars, love affairs and revelations of the men and women—kings, empresses, prophets, poets, saints, conquerors and whores—who created, destroyed, chronicled and believed in Jerusalem. As well as the many ordinary Jerusalemites who have left their mark on the city.

Event begins at 6:30PM
