Photographer's Note

Terezin concentration camp, orderly room and guardroom.
Terezin or Theresienstadt - the first Nazi concentration camp on bohemian territory. Detail from the small fortress, which housed a military prison in Austrian times. The three assassinators of Sarajevo 1914 were the most prominent inmates.

Terezin was abused by the fascists for hoaxing deputees of the Red Cross and pretend that concentration camps were well-run facilities with proper accommodation, food and even opportunities for sports.

Once arrived here, you did not have much future to expect, as the inscription over the next door said
"Arbeit macht frei" (to work makes you free).

Theresienstadt concentration camp saw more than 38.000 victims who died there, and thrice the number were transferred to Auschwitz/Oswiecim and other annihilation sites.

Taken on film with Canon A1, scan from paper print.
