(First comments)[edit]

I have plan to split the article into "Terezin" (as is now) and "Concentration camp Theresienstadt". It is getting large and the two pieces would be more readable and concentrated. German Wiki is splitted similarly.

Does anyone have an objection?

"guided by a spirit of revenge" seems like somewhat froofy language for a factual article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.206.199.186 (talk) 20:10, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

I agree...Some sections are very poorly written (such as the one you referenced).Rabrams20 (talk) 01:36, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Number of prisoners who went through the Malá pevnost[edit]

Please, 90.000 is simply wrong, whereas 32.000 is a number to be found in respected studies. Without this sort of "vandalism" Wikipedia would not be what it is. David —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.245.91.37 (talk) 17:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Dates of Terezín used as a concentration camp for Germans must be wrong[edit]

After the German surrender the small fortress was used as an internment camp for ethnic Germans. The first prisoners arrived on the May 10, 1944. On February 29, 1945 the last German prisoners were released and the camp was officially closed.

There must be some confusion here. There was a concentration camp for Germans interned there after the Second World War. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ceplm (talkcontribs) 08:23, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Important facts about Terezin or Theresienstadt concentration camp[edit]

Gate with the slogan "Work makes you free " in the Small Fortress

After the Munich Agreement in September 1938. And following the occupation of the Czech lands in March 1939 with the existing prisons gradually filled up as a result of the Nazi terror, the Prague Gestapo Police prison was set up in the small fortress in 1940. The first inmates arrived on June 14th 1940. By the end of the war 32,000 prisoners of whom 5,000 were women passed through the small fortress. These were primarily Czechs, later other nationals, for instance citizens of the former Soviet Union, Poles, Germans and Yugoslavs. Most of the prisoners were arrested for different sign of resistance to the Nazi regime. The fact is the first people to enter Terezin (The Small Fortress) were Czechoslavakian. The Jewish Getto was not built until 1941. And the correct name is "Work camp" and at the entrance in German it's written Arbeit macht frei " Work makes you free". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.32.230.230 (talk) 06:24, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

This is the third time this has turned up; is there any reason not to delete it as a rant by a single purpose editor? (discussion here) Xyl 54 (talk) 23:49, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

The truth about Terezin, because I have been there!.[edit]

Is there any reason to believe that the "Arbeit macht frei" sign existed before color pictures, lol? The article states that the town is seeking revitalization as a WWII monument, and I am wondering if this is just part of a publicity grab. Haven't finished reading the verified accounts, but at the start it's more of a cramped ghetto, then a concentration camp, rather than a "work" camp?
