Berlin ‘House of One’ promotes ecumenism between Christians, Muslims and Jews

The ecumenical project has not only received the support from personal donors and private companies from several countries and backgrounds, but has been sponsored by the German government’s Ministries of Interior and of Environment with 10 million Euros.
