If you visit Prague make sure to look into attending the Terezin tour. Terezin is one of the largest Concentration Camps in the Czech Republic. Even though Prague is full of educational activities, visiting Terezin on a coach tour from Prague is a once in a lifetime educational opportunity. A professional guide will walk you through the grounds of the former concentration camp. They will explain important information, narrate memories, and describe disturbing experiences. This tour is not for the faint of heart.
At the front of the gates of the concentration camp you will see a statement bordering the walkway, 'Arbeit Macht Frei' which translates to 'Work will set you free'. This simple statement was painted over every walkway that the prisoners would march through. Hilter wanted to make the statement very clear and possibly add false hope which we know now was the case. Your guide will take through the barracks and sleeping areas of the prisoners and you will view mock uniforms that the prisoners wore. You will have the option of viewing the Terezin Crematory where many bodies were burned and cremated to make room for more prisoners at the camp. At the museum, you will see an aerial view of what the concentration camp use to look like back in World War 2.
 

Many statues and memorials reflect the disturbance and sorrow for the many innocent men, women, and children that died in this concentration camp. The Terezin Memorial is the only one of its kind in the Czech Republic. The memorial is home to thousands of victims that lost their families and their lives to the Nazi regime.

Prague has many attractions, but the Terezin tour will really open your eyes and heart to what really happened in history during World War 2.  Book this unique, educational and eye-opening Terezin Concentration Camp Day Tour right now!
