Teresienstadt was constructed in 1780-1790 by the order of emperor Josef II to protect river bridge fortifications against a possible invasion of Prussian troops in the 18th century. The small fortress or Citadel was used by the Habsburg Monarchy for political prisoners and after the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany small fortress was used as a Prague Gestapo prison. The big fortress was reconstructed to a Ghetto-concentration camp for jews since 1941.

The jewish ghetto in Teresienstadt played three functions: transit, penal and propaganda in order to divert the international public attention from the tragical destiny of ghetto inmates and the true purpose of the German solution of the jewish issue. Drawings and painting left after ghetto children became a testimony for the entire world of the inhuman atrocities by the German nazi.

During the excursion tourists will see former solitary confinement cells in the small fortress and the Holocaust museum expositions in the big fortress. Also tourists will see a documentary film about the life in the Jewish ghetto.
