Nazi Concentration Camps near or between Berlin and Prague to visit

Jump to last reply

Our family will be staying in Berlin then driving to Prague and staying there and we would like to see a former Nazi Concentration Camp to educate our kids about the horror of these camps and the Nazi era. There seem to be two which are close by -- one that is in between Dresden and Poland called theresienstadt ghetto or Terezin, and one north of Berlin called Sachsenhausen. Has anyone been to either of these ? Then, there is Buchenwald, which is a few hours out of our way but maybe offers the best glimpse into the horrors of these camps? We were hoping to spend @ 2 hours at one on the day we are leaving Berlin and driving to Prague.

Any advice welcome.
