Terezín Initiative Institute

The Terezín Initiative Institute is a non-profit organisation that originates from the Terezín Initiative Foundation (Nadace Terezínská iniciativa) that was founded in 1993 by an international association of former prisoners of the Terezín ghetto – the Terezín Initiative.

The aim of the Institute is to pursue and support research of the history of the “final solution” in Bohemia and Moravia and the history of Terezín ghetto, and to present the results to a broader public. The Institute, along with other organizations, wants to make Terezín a place of encounter and discussion between people of different generations and nationalities, and political, philosophical and religious beliefs.
