Children in Theresienstadt - Established in 1941, Theresienstadt concentration camp, also referred to as Theresienstadt Ghetto, was established by the SS in the fortress and garrison city of Terezín, located in what is now the Czech Republic. Tens of thousands of children were held there for months or years, before being sent by rail transports to their deaths at Treblinka and Auschwitz extermination camps in occupied Poland, as well as to smaller camps elsewhere.
