We heard about this concentration camp: but actually, it is quite different from every other because it was not under the rule of the SS and it was not a true concentration camp. It was a Fortress prison, as well as a Show camp when...More
Pavel provided a powerful tour. He brought Terezin to life through the stories he has learned from people who were there. This gave the experience depth and not a small amount of pain and terror. I am grateful to have had this. I wanted to...More

Thank you very much, we also recommend to experience Terezin on your own, however not everyone is used to do it in such a way. Thank you for your 5 stars feedback !
Terezin was a concentration camp, but not really a death camp in that it didn’t have a gas chamber. Jews in Prague were transported to Terezín as a ghetto in WWII. From there, if they were unlucky, they were shipped east to Auschwitz or Birkenau...More

I emailed Pavel direct but it won’t allow me to share an email address here. I found the email address on his website. If you look this sentence up you should find the website. “Pavel Batel and his colleagues are dedicated historians specializing in the role of Terezin in the Holocaust and the Prague Jewish Quarter. “
