News, Tips & Bargains : Grave Is High on List of Must-Sees

July 31, 1994

The movie "Schindler's List" has turned the grave of Oskar Schindler in the Latin Cemetery just outside the Old City of Jerusalem, into a tourist attraction, according to the Israel Ministry of Tourism.

Although no one's officially counting, there's been a "tremendous upsurge" in visitors to the grave, a spokesperson said. "Before the film, hardly anyone asked about it." The guard now opens the gate from 9 a.m. to noon daily at the Catholic cemetery, where the German businessman who saved 1,200 Jews from the Holocaust was buried 20 years ago.
