Photographer's Note

One of the most beautiful houses in the Greek-Colony quarter in Jerusalem, is the International Christian Embassy building.
The villa was built in the early 30s by the contractor Haci Ibrahim , and was called " Villa Circassi" due to the contractor's Circassian origin.
From the mid -30s of the 20th century to the Second World War, the building served the Czechoslovak Consulate . After 1948 Independence-War the building was transferred to the Custodian of Absentee Property and the Ivory-Coast embassy rented it until 1980. Between 1980 to 1997 the building served the Hartman Institute, and since 1997 the building serves as the International Christian Embassy , a non-diplomatic institue.
