Visit Historic Terezin with a private guide
This visit is essential to understanding the complicated history that unfolded here in 1941, when the region's thousand year old Jewish communities were deported through Terezin to death camps.
Terezin was completely different psychologically and physically from any of the 632 other camps. You will visit the Gestapo prison, the Terezin Museum, the Crematorium, the hidden synagogue which was only recently uncovered, and the newly opened exhibition at Magdeburg Barracks.
Understand what happened to so many innocent people through actual artifacts, children's drawings, poetry, and other rare items which survived their owners to speak so eloquently for them.
The driver and I will pick you up from your hotel at the arranged time to begin our journey to Terezin. The drive is about 45 minutes towards the German border. Along the way we will talk about the history of the Czech Republic and what it was like during the occupation in World War II. We will arrive at the small fortress to spend time exploring the gestapo prison. We will then transfer to the large fortress and visit the Magdeberg Barracks, hidden Synagogue and the crematorium.
