“Mount Herzl”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

It's a beautiful but very sad place full of the graves of the most famous Israelis. You can see beautiful views of Jerusalem from up there. My favourite part was the soldiers part of the cemetary, it struck me as being incredibly peaceful as well as sad. If you have a guide there are so many more stories attached to the grave sites that make it personal - otherwise it is just a feeling.

“Never Again ....”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Never again must man be allowed to do to man what was done in the Holocaust. At Yad Veshem the story is retold by those who survived and those who remember the ones who did not. If you have a full day here you will not see everything, but you will come away moved. Particularly poignant is the over-riding view by the Jewish people who do not ask how God could let this happen, only how man -who was made in the image of God-could do this to man. Also the moving emphasis on a future and a hope.

“Peaceful, but sad.”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a peaceful and very beautiful cemetery where the great leaders of Israel are buried. It is also very sad as many soldiers are also buried there. In my opinion, no trip to Jersualem should be made without a visit to this very special place.

“Interesting”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I've been here before, but am always awestruck. The Herzl museum, relatively new is interesting, but not particulary impressive.

It shows you where some of the most important Israelis are buried,most notably Theodore Herzl, the father of modern Zionism also buried there are Yitzhak and Leah Rabin, Gold Mier, Hanah Senesh, Yonatan Netanyahu, he was the only person killed during the raid on Entebee, Uganda in 1976 and was the brother of Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israe.l
