Best Answer

Terezin once served as a military fortress. During World War II, however, Terezin was adapted by the Gestapo and transformed into a concentration camp and a ghetto for Jewish families. Over 30,000 people died in the Terezin concentration camp, even though it was not an extermination camp.
