After passing through beautiful Dresden on route from Berlin, a tour of the Terezin Memorial, a Gestapo Police Prison, was our introduction to the Czech Republic. It was unfortunately a short visit, but the extend to which people, amongst them Jews, homosexuals, professionals, gypsies, and many others suffered under the Nazi regime is very clear and we can only begin to understand what they went though.
At the initiative of former inmates and surviving relatives the Czechslovak Government decided in 1947 to establish the Terezin Memorial whose key mission is to commemorate the pernicious consequences of the suppression of freedom, democracy and human rights.
