G is for Graves
Call me odd but I have a fondness for stumbling around graveyards. I find it interesting not morbid and insightful into the ways which people honor and memorialize their loved ones. This post has photos of graves that I've visited in the past couple of years. Some are famous and some are not. The first three photos were taken at the Guilford (I know another G) Cemetery in Connecticut. New England cemeteries date pretty far back.
Here is the grave of Oskar Schindler. Schindler, a Nazi during the Shoah, saved the lives of 1,300 Jewish men and women. His story was told in the movie "Shindler's List". He is buried at Mount Zion Cemetery in Jerusalem, Israel.
The cemetery on the Mount of Olives, Jerusalem.
These are the graves of some of the fallen soldiers from many of the wars that Israel has fought. They are buried in Mt. Herzl Military Cemetery in Jerusalem.
The graves of Yitzhak Rabin and his wife Leah. His grave is the black marker. They too are buried on Mt. Herzl Cemetery in Jerusalem.
This is a photo of the grave of Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi, India.
The grave of someone unknown to me, buried in a cemetery at the Milk Grotto Church in Bethlehem, West Bank.
May they all rest in peace.
