HISTORY: Theresienstadt concentration camp (often referred to as Terezín) was a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. It was established by the Gestapo in the fortress and garrison city of Terezín (German name Theresienstadt), located in what is now the Czech Republic. On June 10, 1940, the Gestapo took control of Terezín and set up prison in the Small Fortress (kleine Festung), see below. By 24 November 1941, the Main Fortress (große Festung, i.e. the town Theresienstadt) was turned into a walled ghetto. To the outside it was presented by the Nazis as a model Jewish settlement, but in reality it was a concentration camp. Theresienstadt was also used as a transit camp for European Jews en route to Auschwitz. Many of the 80,000 Czech Jews who died in the Holocaust were killed in Theresienstadt, where the conditions were extremely difficult. In a space previously inhabited by 7,000 Czechs, now over 50,000 Jews were gathered. Food was scarce and in 1942 almost 16,000 people died, including Esther Adolphine (a sister of Sigmund Freud) who died on September 29, 1942; Friedrich Münzer (a German classicist), who died on October 20, 1942. Medicine and tobacco were strictly prohibited; possession could be punished by hard labor or death. Men and women were officially forbidden to meet, or to communicate with a Gentile without German permission.
Estimate price for this item is $125 – $130.
Guarantee: As you know for Holocaust artifacts it is very difficult to make Certificate of Authenticity – nobody has the right to do it, each of us has only his own opinion. And I cannot prove the authenticity – I was not there nor do I know the person that it belonged to. I think for most items of this sort of artifacts that unless you’ve known the person or were a family member, it is almost impossible to prove the authenticity. Also I am not a licensed dealer and can not give you a Certificate of Authenticity. For this purpose I give to all of my clients 3 days for inspecting the item – the item can be returned for any reason for a full refund (minus shipping costs, paypal or bank transfer fee…).
