Excavation at Mamilla Cemetary

New photographic and video evidence provided to the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) indicates that archeological excavations by the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) have continued this month on the construction site covering a portion of the ancient Mamilla cemetery, where the Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) seeks to erect a “Museum of Tolerance – Center for Human Dignity.” The evidence strengthens concerns that the site still contains archaeological artifacts and human remains that require continued IAA presence, contrary to SWC claims that bedrock has been reached on all portions of the site.
