If you count went to Prague, I would advise you to integrate with your trip the visit to the ghetto and Terezin Jewish transit camp.
Unlike our European friends, the Second World War is very little taught in Quebec. In fact, the whole story is very little taught!! Taking advantage of a trip to Prague, I decided to visit a Jewish transit camp that had served during the Second World War, the camp of Terezin.
In fact, the function of Terezin has changed over the years.
1940 – Gestapo takes control of the prison of Terezin and it locks those (Jew or not) who disobey their laws
1941 – Terezin is transformed into a walled Jewish ghetto. We use the site to shoot a propaganda video and thus show that the Jews are property in these walls. But in fact, it is a concentration camp and a transit camp before sending the Jews to extermination camps.
There were 144 000 Jews transported to Terezin. The quarter died on the spot (hunger, diseases,…) and 88 000 were deported to Auschwitz or other extermination camps. In the end, only 19 000 survivors were counted.
I found it very rewarding (my sad also) this visit. It allowed me to understand a little better and to learn more about this massacre. The guided tour is particularly interesting. I bought this visit, not far from the clock astromique.
