Terezin-2
+

Terezin was a concentration camp during the Second World War. In many guidebooks it is referred as Theresienstadt, which is a German name for town of Terezin. Unlikely other concentration camps Terezin as a whole town was transformed into the concentration camp. Originally Terezin was normal town with a huge fortress and fortification. Nazis found the area perfect for creation of such a sad facility. Terezin was meant not to be a death camp, yet many lives were lost here.

Visitors are shown the terrible conditions in which prisoners were kept. You can walk through the Small Fortress on your own or you can get a professional guide to lead you through the Memorial. You will see the fake bathrooms (bathrooms built only to be shown to inspection from the Red Cross), bedrooms (which accommodated 60+ people in only a few beds), solo-prison-cells (tiny, dark and cold cells for rebels and uncomfortable prisoners), but also the whole system of tunnels and residences of German officers. In the area of the Memorial it is also possible to visit a cinema and watch a movie form the WWII or about the Terezin concentration camp. There are also movies where some of the prisoners who survived the cruelty, talk about the time spent in Terezin cells.

The other parts of Terezin town hide the Barracks, Museum and the cemetery with the adjusting crematory. You will have a chance to visit all. Of course you can always decide not to visit any other parts, if you do feel well. For some guests the trip can be too emotional and it is recommended to read some more information about the holocaust and concentration camps in advance.

The price does not include the tickets or guided tour of Terezin. The baggage will be secure in the vehicle.
