Visit Theresienstadt to understand the complicated history that unfolded here in 1941. See precious artefacts and drawings, and hear stories about the communities that lived in Terezien.
What to Expect
Terezin (Theresienstadt) is part of a region that was home to thousand-year-old Jewish communities before 1941. It was at this time that these people were deported through the ghetto and concentration camp located in this area to death camps in Auschwitz, Treblinka, and others.
Terezin must be seen in order to understand the complicated history surrounding it, as it became a work camp designed to mislead those who wished to investigate the Nazis' concentration camps.
See the Terezin Ghetto Museum and the Gestapo prison to learn through precious artifacts, children’s drawings, poetry, and other surviving rarities, about the people who were kept at Terezin. These relics provide a voice for the people and eloquently speak for those who did not survive.
The crematorium, the newly discovered hidden synagogue and other memorials are also included in the 5.5-hour tour.
