I travelled to Prague, Czech Republic in 2008 with my partner Hannah as a nice extended weekend away. We had heard that Prague was a beautiful city and that it was a city that we had to visit. Not much do but nice for a couple of days. We checked out the locals sights and before we left I had read about a town called Terizin that was nearby. I had studied history of WW2 and the atrocities of Terizin, the failure of the International Red Cross who had visited the town and the failure to notice the harrowing conditions that the Jews had to endure. This was in part due to the successful ‘Beautification Campaign’ initiated by the Nazis to fool the inspection.

I have included a short paragraph from Wikipedia as reference and I have included my own images. It was a very moving and humbling place to visit.

Theresienstadt concentration camp, also referred to as Theresienstadt Ghetto,[1][2][3] was established by the SS during World War II in the fortress and garrison city of Terezín (German name Theresienstadt), located in what is now the Czech Republic. During World War II it served as a Nazi concentration camp staffed in equal numbers by German Nazi guards and their ethnic Czech collaborators. Tens of thousands of Jews were murdered there and over 150,000 others (including tens of thousands of children) were held there for months or years, before then being sent to their deaths on rail transports to Treblinka and Auschwitz extermination camps in Poland, as well as to smaller camps elsewhere.
