Take a humbling lesson in the horrors of World War II's Holocaust on this day trip to Terezin from Prague by bus. Traveling with a professional guide, discover the former Nazi deportation camp where Jewish prisoners used to be transported, a converted 18th-century fortress where many thousands died at the hands of the Nazis. Tour the barracks and compound of the Main Fortress; visit the museum, cemetery and columbarium; and learn how the Nazis presented the camp as a lively Jewish community to dupe official Red Cross observers.
