Terezín Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague

1. Terezín Concentration Camp Day Tour from Prague

Learn about some of the darkest days in European history on a full-day tour to the Terezín Concentration Camp in the sleepy Bohemian countryside. Following a transfer from Prague city center, explore the former ghetto, concentration camp, and Gestapo prison just 1-hour from the city center. Hear stories from the Czech-Jewish history of World War II and the Holocaust. Central to the tragedy of the Holocaust, Terezín saw 33,000 prisoners perish as a result of malnutrition, disease, and the sadistic treatment of their captors. For many more it was their last stop before being deported to extermination camps like Auschwitz, Treblinka, or Sobibór. Hear how the prisoners defied the direst conditions to maintain a rich cultural and religious life, hold celebrations, and even compose and stage operas. Terezín epitomizes the worst aspects of the human spirit, but its prisoners left the world striking examples of human potential and the power of compassion. Terezín played a double role, both in the Nazi pursuit of the Final Solution, and their propaganda efforts to conceal the Holocaust. See the monuments and memorials at Terezín, and visit the museum to find hidden traces of its dark past. Discuss present-day attitudes towards Terezín, and learn the history of the town, from its time as a Habsburg Empire garrison town, the visit of the Red Cross, and the story of Friedl Dicker-Brandeis and her children's paintings.

We had a very good guide Lija (hope we have spelt your name right). The tour was very respectful to the past and it is a place that if you can visit you should to remind us of the horrors of War and the suffering that went with it for many innocent people. We learnt a lot form Lija, and thank you.

Unique experience, train, bus and entrance fees included in the price, the very knowledgeable and friendly Ilja guide speaks a very understandable English. Experience that is absolutely worth the money.

Our guide Micha was excellent, he was incredibly knowledgable and passionate about history relating to the visit. The day is long and you are on your feet for much of it, take food and drink with you.
