In an illustrated talk based on his book on Jaffa, Adam Le Bor told us the stories of six families from 1920 to today: the Christian Arab car-dealer; the Jewish coffee-and-spice merchant; the Palestinian exile who tried to bring modern business methods to the Arafat era, and the Jewish schoolgirl who befriended an Arab drug dealer.

City of Oranges shows us in Jaffa, a microcosm of the Israeli experience of the Twentieth Century, a nation of divergent narratives of people striving to make a life in a country torn by conflict.
