Terezín Concentration Camp Tour
Today a sleepy countryside town, during World War II a Gestapo prison, concentration camp and ghetto, where over 33 000 people died. Let me walk you through the darkest times of European history, so the memory of those who suffered back then lives on and mankind never let this happen again.
the Fortress | the Ghetto Museum | the Magdeburg Barracks
What you will see and learn:
Expact to be shaken. Visiting Terezín concentration camp itself is a very emotional experience, let alone when I tell you all the moving, tragic stories I had heard from the survivors and eye witnesses.
We will start the Terezín fortress tour at the cemetery with over 10 000 people buried in mass graves, walk through the main gate with the infamous "Arbeit macht frei" sign, see the reception room where prisoners handed in their documents and personal belongings, visit large rooms with bunk beds, disinfection chambers, bathrooms, hospital, morgue and the execution yard, where you can still see bullet marks on the wall. I will also take you to places, that usually stay hidden to the public.
In nearby Ghetto Museum and Magdeburg Barracks you will see photos, drawings and other artifacts showing a day-to-day life of the prisoners, who despite the direst conditions maintained a rich cultural and religious life, held celebrations, art exhibitons, even composed and staged operas. Sounds like a bearable life? Don't be mistaken, evil things that should never be forgottten happened within these walls.
