Interview #3: Adina

Today I want to present another interesting interview, with Adina*. We lived together and had very interesting conversations about Israel, politics, and different problems that occur in the region. Here is the interview:

Interview #1: Azziz

My first blog post I start with Azziz*. He was willing to share his experience with me and patiently answer all my questions. Azziz was born in Jerusalem and lived there all his life.
