At the beginning, the guide will share insights into the events leading to World War II and the Holocaust. We start the tour in the museum and crypt of St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral, the last hideout of Czech paratroopers who killed R.H. On the way to Terezin we stop at the spot of Heydrich assassination showing you the picture taken by the gestapo from the place of the assassination, after that we take you to the village Panenske Brezany to show the mansion R.H. lived with his family and from where he set off for his last ride to Prague.
After that we go to Terezin, first of all we enter the small fortress and gestapo prison, the place that served the Nazis for imprisonment and torture of their political opponents and resistance fighters. You will also have an option to view an authentic propaganda film "the führer gives the Jews a city". Then the tour will continue in the ghetto of Terezín located within the Large Fortress with the museum, which guides you through and describes the personal experiences of the prisoners held here. We will finish our Terezin part with a visit to the cemetery. Terezín cemetery and crematorium are moving and quiet places, where you will be able to take a moment to honour and contemplate the victims of the nazi tyranny.
This trip provides a powerful, touching and personal look into some of the darkest moments of 20th century, but also highlights the power and resilience of the faith maintained by its inhabitants. Nowadays, Terezín is a little town that hardly seems to have once been one of the most important links in the Final Solution.

Having first hand experience of the Holocaust this tour was important. What a sureil experience to understand what people went through. It motivated me to purchase a number of relaive publications & films. Horrific yes but so very educational & regardless of faith or religion it is worth every effort.
This tour was so informative and so well done. Sonja did a fantastic job of
engaging the group and was so informative. The tour did not seem like a seven
tour-the time went by so quickly. Highly recommended!
We had a local guide who was very knowledgeable. We visited the housing area; the cemetaries of the Christians and Jews. The Jewish ghetto located outside Prague. Very interesting and soul-searching. This camp was where all the remaining detainees were sent just at the end of the war from other camps as the Nazis were being overpowered.
