A church member arranged the Christmas decoration which this year was placed among the ruins of war at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, West Bank, on December 6, 2023.

This Christmas 2023, the Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, has decided to adorn its decorations with the likeness of the ruins of buildings in Gaza which were destroyed by Israeli bombs. This decoration is a message and protest against war, as well as sympathy for the fate of Palestinian children, especially for those living in Gaza.
