Main description

The town of Terezín, which is steeped in our history, is far from being just another tourist site. This town, now almost a ghost town, allows us to understand all the atrocities of the genocide of the Second World War. A tragedy hidden behind the thick walls of this fortress.

Built in the 18th century to defend the empire against Prussia, Terezín was initially a garrison town with classical fortifications. In 1941, the city was transformed into a transit camp for Czech Jews before deportation to the East and became at the same time a ghetto for all German and Austrian Jews. Presented by the Nazis as a model Jewish colony, the reality was much darker. The entire population was expelled by the Gestapo to make way for a concentration camp where tens of thousands perished. More than 150,000 Jews were deported there, 88,000 were eventually deported to Auschwitz and other extermination camps. At the end of the war, only 17,000 Jews who passed through the Terezín ghetto survived.

You will visit the Terezín concentration camp through several places and monuments that give a glimpse of the inhuman living conditions of the prisoners. You will visit the Small Fortress, which served as a prison for political workers from all over Europe. The guide will also take you to the Ghetto Museum which sheds light on the history and struggle of each of the prisoners.
