For any of you that don't know, I love postcards.
I've decided that this is probably the best way to document my time in Prague: a blog based on photographs and postcards.
I'll post more often this way (hopefully), and there will just be a small amount of text--a postcard's worth. And this way I'll be able to send "postcards" to everyone.

We visited Terezin, a town north of Prague that was converted into a concentration camp during WWII. It is the only one in the Czech Republic, and served mainly as a transportation camp, it wasn't a death camp. We took a guided tour to the town and saw everything there was to see there. The pictures are of the smaller fortification--where there was a prison. During WWII it served as a Gestapo prison for political prisoners. The bigger fortified town was converted into a Ghetto for Jews. It was sobering, as to be expected. But the day, the weather was absolutely gorgeous. One of the nicest I've seen here yet.

  1. Glad the weather was nice, but you say nothing about any impression Terezin made on you. The vast majority of those housed in the ghetto went on to be murdered in the Nazi death camps and countless prisoners in the small fort were tortured and executed. Is this not worth a mention on your blog?
