HD - TEREZIN - CONCENTRATION CAMP
Our halfday tour takes you to Terezín, originaly built in 1780 by Josef II as an ingenious system within the military fortress for the protection of the Kingdom. During World War II in June 1940 the Small Fortress was turned into a Nazi concentration camp run by the Gestapo. In February 1942 the town of Terezín itself became a Jewish ghetto and 160 000 Jews from 35 different countries were brought there. We´ll see the Gestapo prison and Terezín Museum to understand what happened to so many innocent people. Also included are the Crematorium and other memorials.
