READ ABOUT JOSEF CETL HERE

Originally established as a fortress during the 18th century, its gigantic ramparts remain. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Labe (Elbe) and Ohre (Eger). Although a very advanced modern building at the time ,it gradually became obsolete, and without a military use it fell into a state of disrepair. Terezín today stands as a tragic symbol of the sufferings of the tens of thousands of innocent people who died here during the Nazi occupation of their homeland.

The Lesser Fortress From 1940 to 1945 the Lesser Fortress was as a prison of the Prague Gestapo. In 1994 a new permanent exhibition was created here, devoted solely to the history of political prison; and persecution of the Czech/Slovak nation under the Nazis, and documents the fate of prisoners transferred to other concentration camps inside the German Reich.
