The town of Terezin, originally a garrison town and fortress built in the late 18th century, was taken over by the Nazis in WWII and the original population moved out. It was designated a transit camp and was part of Hitler's 'Final Solution to the Jewish Question'. Wander around the town of Terezin itself and picture how it must have been 60 years ago. Visit the Ghetto Museum and read the story of the town between 1941 and 1945.On the other side of the river, a short walk away, you'll find the Small Fortress, which was used as a prison.
