Between 1948 and 1967 a border separated Arabs living in East Jerusalem from Jews living in the rest of the city.
Today, much of the city’s Arab population remains in the east, while the majority of its Jewish population lives in the west.
Although they are free to do so, few residents move between the city’s Arab and Jewish areas. In the minds of most, the border that separated Jews and Arabs 40 years ago still exists today.
Witness follows Jewish and Arab volunteer paramedics who choose to cross these boundaries.
