More about this tour
Terezín is perhaps best known today as the only known concentration camp operated by the Nazis during World War II within the borders of the Czech Republic (or Czechoslovakia as it was known then). But the history dates back to the 18th century when the Habsburg Emperor Joseph II commissioned its construction as a fortress and was used as such for a century. In later years it became a prison. One of its most famous captives was Gavrilo Princip, Franz Ferdinand’s assassin, whose death is said to be the catalyst to World War I. During WWII, the fortress was used as a concentration camp for 32,000 Jewish prisoners. It is most famous for the sign which was painted over the entrance to the gate, “Work makes one free”
User Reviews & Comments
This was very good tour. We learn a lot and had good time with our guide. It was interesting see a concentration camp in Czech Republic. We did not know before we come that it was true. The guides knew lots of information. It was both sad and interesting so see how life was for those people. And after the lunch was very good, plus a beer of course!
