During this day trip from Prague to Terezín concentration camp you will see both sides, the magnificence of what was an 18th century Austrian fortress and the tragic role it held when the Nazi's repurposed it as a concentration camp, deporting prisoners straight from here to Auschwitz.
You get picked-up at the meeting point and your expert local guide is taking you on a private bus from Prague to Terezín. While Terezín seems a sleepy and unassuming town, you'll hear about the tragedy that befell the prisoners who were brought to this Gestapo prison, Jewish ghetto and deportation camp. You'll see the former SS camp headquarters, the ghetto's guards’ quarters, the Jewish dormitories and the crematorium as your guide tells you about life inside the camp and about the people who were imprisoned here, reminding you that these were not just statistics, but innocent people. You'll see the memorials and hear the stories of these often forgotten victims.
