In case you don't have enough time, I think you can avoid entering the building If you think you have time, it's worth to have a look: it might take max 30'

All of my lectures were held here whilst taking part in a conference for the Holocaust Education Trust. It is an amazing building with a devastating history, as the whole of Terezin has but this building held something more devastating which was the false hope of survial for many of its prisoners - the Brundibar. On our last evening, in... More

Visited the museum after first going to the small fortress. Artifacts of life in the Ghetto are well portrayed and preserved. Very interesting information about ghetto artists and how inhabitants used theatre and arts to escape the cruelty of the war and ghetto.

Magdeburg barracks are very well maintained. Exhibition of artists are divided in sections. Ladies who are working there will play sample of Brundibar opera by Hans Krasa created for Terezin children. It was so moving..

The guides do an amazing job describing the conditions and history of the camp. To observe the conditions under which so many suffered is absolutely horrific. But it must be preserved and visited.
