  • The Museum located in the fortress and the former "showcase city" of the Nazi criminals in the rooms of the original Magdeburg barracks gives an excellent insight into the conditions and life of here interned Jews during the World War 2. The attempt to organize a regular life with music, literature, providing basic needs, etc here deported people touched me. Noteworthy is also the "hike"movement in the concentration camp and other camps.

  • It was hard to see how the Jews were living in those without space hardly even some barracks in attic. It also draws attention as despite the harshness in which they lived, they looked for an escape route through the theater. Really excites you.

  • Not really a museum but and old concentration camp from WW2. Book a guided visit but you are warned it will be really moving and sad. In spite of that if you are visiting Prague and have the time you should visit it. You will grow as a person for sure. I dare to say if it's your first time in a concentration camp, you will not be the same after the visit. Perfect to realize we must work so something like that does not happen again.
  • Interesting place if interested in finding out how Jews were treated by Nazis in the Czech Republic.
  • Great collection of mainly pictures by Terezín artists. There is also a replica of woman's dormitory and theater.
  • Good exposition but really unfriendly personal. They got really angry and loud because of nothing
  • The reality of the past can make you reflect about man's inhumanity to man.
