This is an attraction that every visitor to Prague should take time to visit. The crematorium and the small fortress are incredibly haunting and one can only begin to imagine the horrors that took place there only a few generations ago. The museum and the art museum are both packed with information and things to see and the facts and... More

Benjamin Murmelstein named his book Theresienstadt - the model camp of Adolf Eichmann. I finally visited this unique phenomenon while in Prague. As an historian and teacher I was looking for answers which Mr. Batel was able to provide. I do exception and I am writing review on incredible history lesson I got! His knowledge of Theresienstadt ghetto history is... More

Our family of 5 toured Terezin with Pavel Petel and I highly recommend him! Just make sure you are there on time. We missed the first part, the visit of the fortress and thought we could do it on our own afterwards but it just wasn't the same. Pavel is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about it and you will come... More

Terezin. This was a town that Hitler claimed he had kindly built for the Jews. In fact it was a holding area from which Jews were sent to concentration camps for extermination, although many died in Terezin. Terezin was a military town of 6000 people whom Hitler threw out. He then set up the town to use for propaganda to... More

Not to be missed if you haven't been to Auschwitz or one of the more notorious camps. It's only 70 kilometers from Prague, It's very well presented. There is some amazing art there...I don't have a picture upload to my laptop yet, but there is a bronze sculpture that makes me almost weep when I look at it. We had... More

We really enjoyed the trip to Terezin. Make at least half a day off for this trip. There is small fortress, large fortress and the Jewish ghetto. Special thanks to the tour guide Lukas Lev who did amazing job! It was the best guided tour I have ever been to. We are still planning to come back as we did... More

Terezin was a very somber, but fascinating experience. It is very different from other camps as it was the camp that was used for the Nazi propaganda as the model camp and functioned as a camp to transport Jews to the other camps. I am so glad we did it with a tour guide since it is originally a medieval... More

I would like to thank the Czech government for preserving this historical monument to the atrocities of a bygone era! I visited the memorial with friends on a cold November day last year. To think that people were made to survive in such temperatures with only bare necessities and no heating is absolutely heartbreaking! My friends and I arrived for... More
