While Israel may be a continent away from Hogwarts and the company of Hermione and Ron, our tiny country surprisingly harbors Harry Potter's grave.

Tucked away in a British military cemetery outside Ramle is the final resting place of Private Harry Potter, a young British soldier who died in a firefight outside Hebron in 1939. He was 19 when he passed away, but research proves he was actually one year younger, having lied in order to enlist. Meticulously maintained, the cemetery is the final resting place for hundreds of British soldiers who died during World War I, and later, during the British Mandate of Palestine. Whether you choose to see the gravesite as marking the remains of Harry the Wizard or Harry the Soldier, the strange site and its surroundings nevertheless are quite evocative.



Address: Duchifat Rd, Ramle. Potter is all the way in the back, across from the farthest obelisk, second section from the left
