Holocaust Pt8 -Terezin

Originally a fort and walled town built by Emperor Joseph 11 , the Gestapo turned it into a prison in 1940 and was eventually to become a ghetto and concentration camp .At least 2,600 people died here ,after the war it was used by the Red Cross and then was used as a barracks . Today the area is very run down and even though it is becoming popular with tourists visiting the camp and museum it has very little other income.

The Ghetto area is still occupied today
