Owner description: On the initiative of the newly created Czechoslovak government, in 1947 the National Suffering Memorial was opened on the site of the suffering of tens of thousands; it was later on renamed the Terezin Memorial. The key mission of the Terezin Memorial, the only institution of its kind in the Czech Republic, is to commemorate the victims of the Nazi political and racial persecution during the occupation of the Czech lands in World War II, to promote museum, research and educational activities, and look after the memorial sites connected with the suffering and death of dozens of thousands of victims of violence.

This was the most moving place we have ever visited. Words cannot describe the emotions you feel walking through the buildings and exhibitions of this Ghetto/Concentration Camp. To see the barracks people slept in, knowing that families were separated, the tiny places where the more prominent Jews lived really brings the horrific life they had to live in this place. The school where the young boys lived will bring you to tears. You read some of the poetry that the wrote and you can't help feeling their pain.
There is so much to see, from the music, the artwork, the artifacts that have survived, this is a must see for people of all religious beliefs. One p,ace you must see is the Hidden Synagogue, it will show you the lengths the Jews had to go to to hide their prayer.
Our final stop was at the small Fortress where you see both the Jewish and non Jewish resistance cemetery and you realize the brutality of the Nazis.
If you can see only one site in the Czech Republic, this is the one to see.

i believe every one should visit at least one concentration camp in their lifetime. i went to see terezin memorial. i always hear about the holocaust on tv, in books, in documentaries but it didn't dawn on me how real it was until i joined this tour. it was such a sad place to visit but a must-visit place none the less if only to remind us of the horrors of the past, so it will not happen again.
the place was well kept. i was roaming around room to room with my heart so heavy. the presence of the ugliness of holocaust was still there. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and was narrating the story in a matter of fact attitude. it must have taken a lot of courage to be a tour guide and reiterating the same painful history day after day. the whole terezin town felt so dreary. it was such a grim atmosphere. but as sad as it was, it was definitely worth the trip.

Booked a shared tour to terezin with Pavel batel. Unfortunately he was unwell but sent the wonderful Michaela in his place. Ended up being a very small tour (just 3 people) which was a bonus as we felt the attention to detail and cold spend time being unrushed.mMichaela was very informative and knowledgeable. Started her explanation already on the drive ( very comfortable sedan) was then very patient who th a lot I formation through the 6 hour tour. Can't say enough about the day. Very thought provoking, eye opening and educational.

I must say I had never been on a Concentration camp before. The feeling of the horrors of history are there.
You'll learn everything you need to learn on this very small town.
If you are interested in this kind of history. Come visit it.
