Architect: Karl Hermann Imberger, 1893
An unusual visit at this closed compound situated behind a stonewall, originally built by Catholic nuns belonging to the St. Charles Borromeo Order (a 16th century cardinal) as a shelter for the old and needy. At the end of the 19th century, it also extended help to those afflicted by the Bubonic plague. In 1905, the building was converted into a school for girls, and during the Second World War became a refuge for German nuns who were in the country at the time – about 140 in total. When the war ended, the building`s original purpose was reinstated – namely a shelter for the old and needy, but this time it was Holocaust survivors who were treated by the nuns. In the 1990s, the building changed its purpose once again and became a hostel for pilgrims.
The tour of the compound, led by Hana Bendcowsky from the Jerusalem Center for Jewish-Christian Relations, will talk about the history of the building and includes a visit at the church and spacious courtyard.
Six tours limited to 30 participants each, on a first come, first served basis.
