Just an hour outside Prague, Památník Terezín - Malá pevnost is a former military fort that played a grim role in World War II. Originally built in the 18th century to strengthen the city's defenses against Prussia, the fortress never saw a real battle, eventually becoming a ghetto and concentration camp for Jews from Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Austria. Although never officially designated as an extermination camp, the ghetto saw the deaths of over 30,000 people, caused in large part by appalling living conditions. Today, this site contains a memorial complex preserving some of the buildings used to house thousands of prisoners. Visit the on-site museum for an in-depth look at the ghetto's role in the "Final Solution." Památník Terezín - Malá pevnost is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
