Terezín Concentration Camp
[… Kate J] was such an amazing guide that I felt I had never enjoyed a tour like this before. I got to know all the facts that I needed to know as well as so many stories behind what we were looking at. I would love to have another tour with her again if I [go] back to Prague next time!! “Awesome guide in trip to terezin” 5 of 5 stars, Nov 9, 2011
Just one hour outside of Prague lies Terezín, a magnificent former 18th century Austrian fortress with a terrible past. The former garrison became a refugee centre for Czechs fleeing Adolf Hitler’s annexation of the Sudentenland. When the rest of the country soon fell into Nazi clutches it became a Gestapo prison, a Jewish ghetto and then a deportation camp sending trains directly to Auschwitz. Terezín’s story is a combination of life and death: the tragedy of the Holocaust contrasts with the prisoners’ secret celebrations of culture, politics and faith.
This 7-hour tour, including travel time, follows the same train lines used to send prisoners from Prague to Terezín. Today Terezín is a sleepy little country town that hardly seems to likely to have been one of the key centers of the Final Solution but our guides are experts in telling the stories behind the statistics and bringing the past back to life. We show you the memorials and often hidden traces of the former ghetto on this unforgettable trip.
