Your tour will start at your hotel in Prague from where you will be driven to Terezin for just under an hour. During this tour you will learn about the former Jewish Ghetto in the Terezin Big Fortress, where you'll find the Ghetto Museum, SS Camp Headquarters, Ghetto Guards Station, the Seat of the Council of Elders, Jewish Dormitories, railway tracks, the Crematorium, the Columbarium and the Jewish Prayer Room.
See many artifacts in the museum of Terezin Concentration Camp, such as a collage of drawings by children imprisoned at the camp and the propaganda movie, which was produced by the Nazis to present Terezin as a "gift" to the European Jews from Hitler.
Also enter the gate of the Terezin concentration camp Small Fortress, a former Gestapo prison. Walk through and learn about the prison barracks, the execution grounds where firing squads murdered innocent people, the workshops, the dark solitary confinement cells and a cemetery that was built after the war. At the end of your Terezin visit you will be taken back to your hotel in Prague.
The massive citadel of Terezín (Theresienstadt) with more than 4km of walls was originally a military garrison and fortress built in the 18th century by Emperor Joseph II, and used as a defence against Prussian aggression. During WWII, the Nazis used Terezín as a transit camp and prison of the Prague Gestapo. Remember the sad history of the Jews in the Museum of the Ghetto, where more than 150,000 Jews were sent, and although it was not an extermination camp, at the end of the war there were just 17,247 survivors.
