Overview

The Protestant Cemetery on Mount Zion was established in the 19th century by Presbyterian missionaries. Situated in a quiet corner on Mount Zion, it is the resting place of American and British missionary pioneers of the Ottoman period. Among those buried here is Oskar Schindler, the German businessman who managed to save the Jewish workers in his factory from certain death at the hands of the Nazis, and whose deeds became well-known through Steven Spielberg's film, "Schindler's List". Another famous figure buried here is Flinders Petrie, credited as the father of modern archeology.
