Terezin Concentration Camp north of Prague, Czech Republic

In 1940 Prague’s Gestapo installed the Terezin Small Fortress police prison. About 32,000 prisoners passed through the Terezin Small Fortress between 1940 and 1945. Approximately 2,500 people died – some of hunger or disease, while others were overworked, tortured and executed.  In 1941 the town of Terezin was transformed by the Nazis into a Jewish ghetto-transit camp. Until the end of the war, more than 150,000 deportees came through the camp. Some 35,000 inmates died there. Russian forces liberated Terezin on May 8, 1945, eight days after Berlin had fallen to the Allies. Today the well-preserved concentration camp stands as a memorial to the dead and a monument to human depravity.

Dresden, Germany – destroyed by Allied aerial bombing at the end of WWII and rebuilt again

The capital city of the Free State of Saxony in Germany, Dresden is situated in a valley on the River Elbe near the Czech border. Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor. The city was completely destroyed by the controversial Allied aerial bombing toward the end of World War II. The impact of the bombing and 40 years of urban development during the East German socialist era have considerably changed the face of the city.

Dresden has experienced dramatic changes since the reunification of Germany in the early 1990s. The city still bears many wounds from the bombing raids of 1945, but it has undergone significant reconstruction in recent decades. Restoration of the Dresden Frauenkirche was completed in 2005, a year before Dresden’s 800th anniversary.
