Visit to the Terezín Concentration Camp:

During World War II Terezín was a stopping point for Jews “relocated to the East”. The visit is a bit of an experience but it is worth it. The guided group tour departs from the center of Prague and you will have round-trip group transport, because of course, luckily you will be able to leave.

The old Terezín fortress was built by order of the Austrian emperor Josef II in 1784 and was named after the emperor’s mother. However, it is currently known for a more sinister episode in its history: having been a stopping point for Jews who were “resettled in the east”. This excursion takes you from the center of Prague to the center of a horrifying tragedy. Fortunately, at the end of the visit you will be able to leave freely.

The statistics are simply shocking: of the 140,000 people who were sent to Terezín from the Czech Republic, Germany and other areas, only 17,000 survived. This was not an extermination camp, but around 33,000 people found death here from famine and disease. A crematorium was built to manage the death rate, which had a daily capacity of 200 bodies. Simultaneously 90,000 people were sent to the Auschwitz and Treblinka camps.

With an incredibly sinister twist, Nazi propaganda branded Theresienstadt a spa town. Meanwhile, the inmates managed to preserve their dignity through religious and cultural celebrations. Artists, writers and musicians embodied life there, taught and offered performances for others. Its library housed 60,000 books and its 15,000 children received an education.

Terezín has an excellent museum and guided tour, which uncover us in an uncomfortably close way all the aspects of the history of this place. These include the Jewish oratory, the SS barracks, the Gestapo cells, the headquarters of the Council of Elders, and the Jewish dormitories.

It will not be a fun excursion but a journey to bear witness to an uncomfortable and tragic episode in our history. If it is through tragedy that we best understand our own nature, this may turn out to be the most memorable day of your visit to Prague.

Departure from the city center

The tour takes you from the center of Prague to the countryside by train (travel is included), a journey of approximately 38 miles / 60km north, with return the same day. Normally visitors to this tourist site prefer to come and go on the same day. The place seems not to have recovered from its own history, so the idea of ​​staying for a leisurely stroll is rather ghostly.
