Grave of Oskar Schindler information
Among the ancient sites on Mt Zion is one relatively new site, the grave of Oskar Schindler , the Austrian industrialist who saved more than 1200 Jews from the gas chambers (and whose story was captured by filmmaker Steven Spielberg). From Zion Gate in the Old City walk directly ahead, downhill, bearing left at the fork to go past the Chamber of the Holocaust, round the bend and head across the road to the entrance of the Christian cemetery. Once inside the cemetery head down the stairs two levels. Schindler’s grave is near the centre of the third (lowest) level. It’s not well marked but you can look for the cenotaph covered in stones. Ask the guard for directions if you really get lost.
