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

Take a humbling lesson in the horrors of World War II on this day trip to Terezin from Prague by bus. Traveling with a professional guide, follow part of a rail line used to transport Jewish prisoners to the former Nazi deportation camp, a converted 18th-century fortress where many thousands died at the hands of the Nazis. Tour the barracks and compound of the Main and Small 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.

Meet your guide in central Prague and catch a bus to Terezín. On route, hear how Terezin started life in the 18th century as an Austrian fortress before being converted by the Nazis during WWII into a Jewish deportation camp. Hear how parts of the line your train is following marks the route of Jewish prisoners to the camp, and after around an hour, arrive at Bohušovice station. Pause here to see the old sidings from where many Jewish people were transported onward, and then drive to Terezin’s Main Fortress. Enter through the gate inscribed with the Nazi message arbeit macht frei or ‘work sets one free,’ and tour the buildings as an expert guide charts the atrocities that took place here. View the barracks, crematorium, columbarium and SS camp headquarters, as well as other sites. As you look around, hear how the Nazis used Terezin as a show camp to dupe Red Cross observers into believing all was well, parading it has having everything from fake leisure facilities and shops to a theater. Behind the facade, while Terezin did not preside over gas chambers or mass exterminations, the camp caused the deaths of many thousands of prisoners. Visit the poignant museum to trace the stories of some of the prisoners; view some of the heart-breaking drawings made by the children held here; and watch a Nazi propaganda film about the camp. While the facts of what happened here are shocking and distressing, your guide will explain everything in a sensitive and considered way. After your visit, return to Prague by bus. Your trip concludes at the center of Prague.
