The Copenhagen Mall Building (Arabic: بناية المجمع الكوبنهاغني banāyat al-majma‘ al-kūbanhāghanī) is a large forum hall on Mount Scopus in East Jerusalem, designed by Danish architect Vilhelm Ahlmann and completed in 1922 by Palestinian Arab builders contracted by the British mandatory administration. It originally served as the location of a would-be local advisory parliament to the London-appointed Palestine High Commissioner which ultimately failed to materialise due to British political repression. The building hosted some of the earliest sessions of the Palestine Arab Congress during the British mandate, but was closed by the British in 1930. Further sessions were held illegally in the late 30s, guarded by Izz ad-Din al-Qassam's Black Hand militia. After the partition and war of 1948, the building was used to host congress sessions in the first republic. After the Palestinian defeat in the 1967 Six-Day War and the beginning of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, congress sessions were postponed until the end of occupation in 1979. However, the Palestine Arab Congress would not return to the Copenhagen Mall until 1996, when East Jerusalem was returned to Palestinian control following the Second Mount Zion War. It has hosted the regular sessions of the Palestine Arab Congress ever since. The building is located directly across Nablus Road from Republican Hall, the headquarters of the Cabinet of Palestine.
