The visitor is taken to the Mea Shearim area in Jerusalem and during the holiday of succot. Constructed in 1874, Me'a She'arim was one of the first neighborhoods to be built outside the Old City walls. It is home to many members of Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox community. Several panoramic views of Jerusalem are featured with an approaching thunderstorm. A thunder head over Jerusalem rises dramatically into the sky.
Also featured is a view of Augusta Victoria, a church-hospital complex located on the southern side of Mount Scopus beside Mount of Olives, Jerusalem. Augusta Victoria was built in 1907 as a center for the German Protestant community in Ottoman Palestine. The complex was named for Augusta Viktoria of Schleswig-Holstein, wife of German Kaiser Wilhelm II, who visited Jerusalem in 1898. During World War I, the Hospital served as German military hospital, and in 1934, The Nazi party held meetings and assemblies there. Under Jordanian administration, technically under United Nations Truce Supervision Organization control, it was a military hospital for soldiers from the Arab Legion. Prior to the 1967 Six-Day War, the campus was fortified with several bunkers, still visible today. Currently, the facility is a 161 bed hospital run by the Lutheran World Federation.
