The fortress could not seal out evil no matter how well built. It contains excellent displays from Terezin as a concentration camp. A must see. This is 2017. Will history repeat itself? God help us.

Approaching Terezin from the east you come first to the Small Fortress which housed a Nazi concentration camp. It's massive, and the inevitable reaction is, "Why is this called the Small Fortress?". Then, when you continue to the town proper, you realise why: the town...More

A ghost town with a lot of history, the ghetto museum has a very informative film, which tells everything you need to know.
