Terezín Concentration Camp (Theresienstadt)
Terezín was used as a show camp by the SS to dupe foreign observers into thinking that all was well. But all was far from well. Although there were no mass exterminations, no gas chambers, prisoners were worked and punished without mercy, and many thousands died here.
The camp is now a memorial to the people who suffered in it. There is a museum devoted to its history and collections of the prisoners' art works, letters, photographs and memoirs.
The Local guide at Terezin was really good with her detailed explanations of the various situations and events that happened at this camp during WWII. It was an interesting and educational experience.
very interesting camp, good tour guides, fairly small and intimate group. a sobering experience but well mapped out and explained by the guides. If you're in Prague it's an easy way to get out of the city for a day for a great historical adventure.
An excellent trip, well organised with a very knowledgable guide, who spoke most of time on the coach there and back ( one hour each way ) , as well as at Terezin itself.
