What to expect

During this tour, which includes the admission tickets, a certified guide will show you Terezin Concentration Camp and its most significant places.

Terezin is located approximately ninety miles north of Prague and was originally built in 1780 by Emperor Joseph II of Austria and named after his mother, Empress Maria Theresa. Terezin consisted of the Big Fortress and the Small Fortress. The Big Fortress was surrounded by ramparts and contained barracks. However, Terezin had not been used as a fortress since 1882.

Terezin changed dramatically when the Nazis renamed it Theresienstadt and sent the first Jewish transports there in November 1941. The Nazis sent approximately 1,300 Jewish men on two transports to Theresienstadt. These workers made up the Aufbaukommando (construction detail), later known in the camp as AK1 and AK2. The largest and most serious problem these work groups faced was metamorphosing a town that in 1940 held approximately 7,000 residents into a concentration camp which needed to hold about 35,000 to 60,000 people.

At the end of the visit you will be brought back to Krizovnicke Square in Prague.
