School which breaks down barriers in Jerusalem

School Reporters in Jerusalem explain that despite the difficulties of growing up in a city at the heart of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians, many students are trying to get along together and live side by side in peace.

The school which Bana and Yasmin go to - Hand in Hand - is one of the rare ones in which Jews and Arabs study in the same class despite their differences.

They demonstrate that friendships can be made and coexistence can be achieved.
