Ammunition Hill Memorial and Museum
One of the fiercest battles in Jerusalem during the 1967 Six Day War was fought here by Israeli paratroopers to take the well-fortified Jordanian position that blocked the way to the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University. Visitors can walk along the trenches to imagine the fighting, and can pay their respects to the fallen at the memorial for Battalion 66. The museum offers models and an audio-visual display describing the battle. In the surrounding park, one sometimes encounters Israeli and Jordanian families partaking of a memorial meal in honor of relatives who fell here.
This is the site of the battle that reunited Jerusalem as a Jewish city for the first time since the year 6. Wow! The historic significance is palpable and you feel enormous pride in how the Jewish warriors were able to accomplish their victory over the brave and fierce Jordanian defenders.
