After viewing the grave site of Theodore Hertl, we walked through the cemetery, and viewed the graves of prime ministers and dignitaries. Seeing the age of the soldiers that died, many so very young, was heartbreaking. Freedom is not free and this site proves that...More

The tour is designed to teach you the history to the Jewish State and it works well. You move through 3 rooms that show short films that explains how the process started regards Israel.
