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.

Saw All the Sites of Terezin. The Magdeburg Ex Army Barracks. Found the Most Interesting. Art, which Flourished in The Dark Times at the Ghetto. Music, Composers, Paval Haas, & Gideon Klein. The Opera, " Flasinetar Brundibar ". Cartoonist, Bedrich Fritta. The Drawing of Peter Ginz. All Very Good. The Jewish Prayer Room & The Attic. Round the Corner. Are a Must See Too. So Much to Take in. You Need a Full Day. You Can Make Your Own Way by Bus. But to get a lot from it. I Payed for a Private Tour. Used Praga Caput Regni. Very Knowledgeable. Done at a Relaxed Pace. Would Recommend. Terezin is Somewhere Everybody Should Visit. To Educate, and Make Sure this Never Happens Again. May All Those Who Perished. Rest in Peace.

The Magdburg barracks houses a museum dedicated to the cultural life that thrived in the ghetto.144,000 Jews were sent to Theresienstadt-88,000 of those were were deported to Auschwitz and other extermination camps. Despite the appalling living conditions( viewers can see a reconstruction of the the attic living quarters were thousands of Jews were forced to live) and the disease , hunger , terror and constant deportations to the " east", it is remarkable that the Nazis could not crush the human spirit. The arts flourished in this ghetto.Operas and plays were performed , music was written, and artists painted and sketched , recording both the horrors of the ghetto and the inherent beauty of the world which ghetto walls could not taint. Almost all of the artists, musicians ,writers , actors etc who are mentioned in the museum were murdered by the Nazis. A visit to this museum elicits many emotions- from wonder that under such circumstances art was still possible, to anger that these people were subjected to such radical hatred which did not see them as human beings but as objects to be slaughtered, to a profound feeling of sorrow and loss- if this is the work these artists created in Terezin, what more could they have given the world if they hadn't been murdered ?

Plan on spending at least and hour or two in the museum .

This museum is an amazing reminder of what Jewish people had to struggle through. Please take time to read all the little notes that have been left behind and look at the art work from the children.
