Begin with pickup at your hotel in Prague, then travel to Terezín in an air-conditioned coach that’s comfortable and Wi-Fi equipped. Upon arrival in Terezín, begin a tour of the town, which is now a memorial to the thousands of Jewish people who lived in the camp during the Second World War.
See the Small Fortress, which the Nazis transformed into a prison for political prisoners, eventually interning 32,000 people over the course of the war. Find out what life was like in the Main Fortress, which became a walled ghetto for Jews from around Europe. The guide will share stories about the wartime history of Europe, and how it connected to events on the ground in Czechoslovakia.
Learn about the horror of Terezín concentration camp, but also about the camp’s orchestra, artists, writers, and teachers that worked to express themselves in dire conditions. After visiting Terezín, make the return trip to Prague, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
