The deportation of the Jews of Czechoslovakia to Terezin began in late November, 1941. Mass deportations to Terezin ended in the first half of 1943, by which time about 90% of Czechoslovakia’s Jews had been incarcerated in the ghetto. Among them were the Jews of Uhersky Brod, who were deported in early 1943. In total, some 140,000 Jews passed through Terezin, sent there from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark and other countries under Nazi occupation. Most were deported from there to Auschwitz and murdered. Approximately 22,000 survived the Holocaust.
