A visit to Terezin is essential to understanding the complicated history that unfolded in 1941, when the region’s thousand-year-old Jewish communities were deported through Terezin to death camps. Terezin is a unique and significant destination as the site of a former holding camp for Jews. Although Terezin was never an extermination camp, in 1941 Hitler had the old Austro-Hungarian military outpost converted into a holding camp, and used it for propaganda to cover up the atrocities occurring elsewhere.

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 (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. This meaningful tour is led by either an expert tour guide with Precious Legacy Tours, or by a Holocaust survivor.

On the way back to Prague, stop for a reprieve in Ustek, a picturesque little town in northern Bohemia on the edge of the Ceske Strdohori (Czech Highland) and Kokorinsko national parks. Ustek has been used as the setting for many Czech films thanks to its old-fashioned charm and style. Ustek’s Jewish links date back to at least the 16th century, and the town’s unique sandstone synagogue has been recently reconstructed to its former glory. The town has a wide range of architecture worth viewing, from the Baroque church of St. Peter and Paul to the 16th century gable house of Mírové square.
