Terezín exists in two parts: it consists of a town turned into a transit camp and ghetto, and a prison.

The Nazis, who called it Theresienstadt, used both to serve their purposes. The ghetto was primarily a holding place for Jews and political prisoners prior to being sent off to the camps in the east.

Both locations stand as a somber reminder of the millions slaughtered, tortured, and imprisoned for the crime of not measuring up to Nazi ideology and fascist agenda.
