Terezin Memorial /Theresienstadt/
The fortress at Terezin was founded at the end of the 18th century
by Emperor Josef II and was used as a bastion to prevent the entrance
of Prussian units into the Czech lands. From November 1941, the town
of Terezin served as a concentration and transition campfor ethnic Jews.
By the end of the World War II, more than 150 000 people had been
transported to Terezin. Starvation, epidemics and severe conditions
deprived 35 000 prisoners of their lives directly in Terezin while many
others were murdered later in Auschwitz, Treblinka, Majdanek.
