What to expect

On this half day-trip to the former ghetto, concentration camp and Gestapo prison you will learn about the Czech-Jewish history, World War II and the Holocaust.

After picking you up from your hotel in Prague, your guide will take you to the sleepy town of Terezin in the Bohemian countryside. This former ghetto and concentration camp is a lasting reminder of the Jewish tragedy of World War II. You will visit the Museum of Holocaust, Secret Synagogue where services secretly took place during the Ghetto period, the Jewish cemetery and the Crematorium whilst your guide is letting you in on the stories of the people living through the Nazi martyrdom.

Another stop on the tour includes the Small Fortress, former political prison and Prague Gestapo prison during World War ll. This contrasts with prisoners' courageous resilience. Defying the most dire conditions, people maintained a rich cultural and religious life, held celebrations, even composed and staged operas. Terezin epitomizes the worst aspects of the human spirit but its prisoners left the world striking examples of human potential and the power of compassion.

After the tour, your guide will drive you back to your hotel in Prague.
