Above and below, the small fortress at Terezin, meant to house a few thousand soldiers, eventually came to house tens of thousands of prominent Jews from Czechoslovakia, Poland and Germany.
One of hundreds of Jewish graves in front of the small fortress. Most of the head stones here had death dates in late '44 or early '45.
