Terezin Ghetto Story
with Pavel Batel
Legacy of the Terezin ghetto
The story of the Terezin Ghetto/Camp is one of the most powerful narratives of humanity ever recounted, hidden in the shadow of general historical facts.

It is a story of sophisticated evil and the master deception project of Adolf Eichmann.

Experience the journey with team members of a dedicated historian and writer Pavel Batel, who interviewed over forty survivors worldwide and took part in creating documentaries.
Pavel Batel & team
Pavel Batel dedicated two decades to intensive research on the history of the Terezin Ghetto. Collecting testimonies from Holocaust survivors and eyewitnesses is crucial for preserving the memory of the past and ensuring that the horrors of the Shoa are never forgotten. Interviewing survivors "behind closed doors" is especially important, as it allows them to share their most personal and painful memories in a safe and private environment.
