The Grave

Graves of Vera and Chaim Weizmann (left and right, respectively)
Weizmann asked to be buried in the garden of the estate next to his house. At the request of Vera Weizmann, in memory of their son, his tombstone was fashioned after the tombstones of missing soldiers in Great Britain (where their son’s name is engraved).
 
The tombstone was designed by sculptor Moshe Ziffer. Chiseled in the center is the emblem of the Weizmann Institute of Science (the Tree of Life), designed by house architect Erich Mendelsohn at the request of Chaim Weizmann. In 1966, fourteen years after Chaim Weizmann’s death, Vera Weizmann was buried by his side.
