  the many graves of Terezin

The town of Terezin in north Bohemia was once famous for its imposing fortress but the lasting impression unfortunately is as a concentration camp to "re-urbanization" of at first Prague's Jewish population and then others from around Europe. Over 30,000 people died here from malnutrition, disease, and cruel punishment. This fascinating if morbid area is easily accessible from Litomerice, just a few kms away.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
