“Who are these People?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

I could not help but wonder about these poor souls buried in this emaculate cemetery. What were they thinking as they met their horrible fate? They were talented, vibrant amazing individuals lost in one of the cruelest regimes our history knows. The roses are so beautiful. It is a well-kept, moving memorial to so many who lost their lives so needlessly. I am so glad we were able to visit.

“worth doing if you have a ticket, but not just for itself”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

A bit of a shuffle in with lots of other people round the path. Fascinating to see so many stones, but without the language to be able to read the stones a little uninvolving. Made us think of Howarth churchyard. Glad we did it, but it was part of the overall Jewish museum ticket, would have felt let down if we had paid a separate entrance for this on its own.

“Pure magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2012

Stones are able to tell you many stories, just listen. Big gravestones, small ones. Even though you cannot read Hebrew some pictures give you a hint to understand. The message is_ Do not be blind, do not pretend to be deaf.

“Should not have to pay to visit a cemetery.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

The Jewish Cemetery has very limited access and it is a travesty to have to pay to visit it. Admittedly it has a wonderful presence and atmosphere and the graves are very interesting, but having to pay is a no-no.

“Chilling history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

It is rather chilling, when you get to know the history...however professional guide will help you to understand about the tragedy of the whole Teresin place.
