What to expect

A day-trip to the former ghetto, concentration camp and GESTAPO prison just one hour from Prague, this tour focuses on Czech-Jewish history, World War II and the Holocaust.

A sleepy town in the Bohemian countryside today, your expert guides will help you see through its pretty facade. You will visit Terezín's monuments, memorials and museums and find hidden traces of its dark past while discussing present-day attitudes towards Terezín. You will learn about its history, from its times as a Habsburg Empire garrison town to the visit of the Red Cross and the story of Friedl Dicker-Brandeis and her children’s paintings.

A sobering but essential educational experience shedding light on people’s darkest potential. Remembering what happened then and drawing the right conclusions remains forever crucially important. Central to the Holocaust, more than 33,000 prisoners died here as a result of malnutrition, disease and the sadistic treatment by their captors. For many more, it was their last stop before being deported to extermination camps like Auschwitz, Treblinka or Sobibór.

This contrasts with prisoners’ courageous resilience. Defying the direst conditions, people maintained a rich cultural and religious life, held celebrations, even composed and staged operas.
Terezín epitomises 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 unique double role, in the Nazis’ pursuit of the Final Solution but also their propaganda efforts to conceal the holocaust.

In this tour, you will visit the Columbarium, the Jewish Prayer Room, the Crematorium, the Seat of the Council of Elders, the Jewish dormitories, the Ghetto Museum and Magdeburg Barracks
