The concentration camp is just over an hour outside of Prague. We booked a tour and were very impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of the guide. The buildings are well preserved and there are exhibits of the sleeping, washing and eating conditions that the prisoners experienced. Standing in the cramped, cold and dark cells give you some idea of the trauma that the prisoners must have experienced. While it is a very sad and sobering experience, it is also necessary to appreciate your own situation and to spread awareness and stop such attrocities in the future. The video that was played with the newsclips and propaganda was interesting to see because I had not realised that the world in general did not know what was really happening in these camps and how they were 'sold' to the world as spa resorts. The guide took us through the tunnel, showed us the place where so many bodies were buried and told us the details about the camp and how it was used as a transient camp for other camps like Nuremberg. All in all, a very educational site to visit
