On my last free day in Prague, there was one site I wanted to see. As a long time student of European history, I wanted to experience what leads man to commit his most inhumane acts to his fellow beings. While Terezin did not make the grade as a Nazi death camp, it is one of those truly ghastly places... More

I went to Terezin with Pavel after reading numerous overwhelmingly positive reviews on tripadvisor about him. However, I feel one should moderate their enthusiasm towards Pavel's expertise. As a history undergraduate, I felt that his tour is catered towards a non-specialist audience that is seeking a broad overview on how the Nazis used the area. For the price I am... More

Terezin (Theresienstadt concentration camp) also referred to as Theresienstadt Ghetto, was established by the SS during World War II in the fortress and garrison city of Terezín (German name Theresienstadt), located in what is now the Czech Republic. During World War II it served as a Nazi concentration camp staffed by German Nazi guards. Pavel explained the trip very wonderfully,... More

If you don't use Pavel Batel you are not getting the whole story of Terezin. He is the authority. He has written about, researched it, interviewed survivors. He picked us up and gave us info the moment we started. Terezin is an untold story in US history books but it is a story every one needs to here. Might you... More

I am a university professor in the U.S. who annually brings students to Germany to study the legacy of the Nazi police state. In addition to Germany, I always include a trip to one of the Nazi-occupied countries to help students understand some of the differences (and similarities) between policing in Nazi Germany and policing in occupied (or "protectorate") countries....

About an hour by train, Terezin was an integral part of the Nazi invasion of Eastern Europe and Prague back in 1937. Here you will learn how the Nazi's transported the Jews from Prague and other cities and forced them to live in this ghetto. A crematorium was built to deal with the mass deaths here (still functioning and now... More

After reading numerous reviews on trip advisor about Pavel we decided to hire him for our excursion to Terezin. I can understand now why all the reviews were so fabulous . We just returned from a nine hour tour which is one of the best to worst we have ever had in any part of the world . Although the... More

While gut-wrenching, this place is definitely worth seeing. My only regret is that I paid a private guide a ton of money to go, and shouldn't have. Would have been a much better and considerably less expensive choice to rent a car and make the easy 30 minute drive myself. There is plenty of parking, and you won't feel as... More

Our guide, Pavel Batel, was phenomenal. He picked us up punctually in a clean and comfortable van. He narrated Czech history on the journey to Terezin. When we arrived, he guided us through the historical sites and recited the terrifying and dark chapter of the camp and fortress with passion and meaning. His knowledge of Terezin was incredible, perhaps surpassed... More

My wife and I were very fortunate to have chosen the tour of Terezin with Pavel Batel. He came highly recommended from tripadvisor and he exceeded our expectations. He was extremely passionate, friendly, punctual and a knowledgeable individual who presented the topic of Terezin in an unforgettable way. His insight into this topic and general history of that time period... More
