Terezín Fortress

The Fortress of Terezín stands in the open landscape as a self-contained technical and urban monument. Terezín is a unique type of fortress town, whose layout, accommodation, administrative buildings and production units supported the fortress proper from its very foundation. Terezín Fortress is also a globally recognised symbol of the Holocaust as a centre for the assembly of Jews prior to their deportation to the Nazi Germany extermination camps across Europe.
