Die Harald Smidt Show - Ethiopian Consulate - Netflix
Ethiopian Empress Taytu had convinced her adviser Katarina Hall, who had returned without her husband to Ethiopia in 1902, to persuade Ustinov to acquire property near the Ethiopian Church in Jerusalem. The land was purchased in 1910, and construction of a large building began. Ustinov and his family left Palestine in 1913 for Russia, where he died in 1918. His widow Magdalena, who went to live in England and later in Canada, inherited the land in Jerusalem and the partially completed building on it. During a trip to Jerusalem in 1924, she sold the property to the Empress Zewditu I of Ethiopia, who was also visiting there. Zewditu continued the construction on Ustinov's foundations, and it became the Ethiopian Consulate. It still exists."
