Sambuski cemetery, a burial place for the poor folk of Jerusalem, dated back to 1400. About 2,100 names of the buried are known by know, but there are 7,000 of potential burial spots in place.

The cemetery was desecrated, the gravestones were smashed and an extensive restoration work was carried out here. The project included building floating staircases, arranging the perimeters with terraces, restoring and arranging the graves and cleaning the area, closing the Geniza cave and setting up handholds.
