Theresienstadt: old postcard from 1918 with a parade ner post-office in a street with tobacco shop.

 

Sent Theresienstadt to Bruck. One stamp missing, minor aging.

 

From 1914 until 1918 Theresienstadt housed one of its most famous prisoners: Gavrilo Princip, the man who assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife on June 28, 1914, and triggered the outbreak of World War I. Princip died in cell number 1 from tuberculosis on April 28, 1918.

 

On June 10, 1940, the Gestapo took control of Terezín and set up the prison in the "Small Fortress" (kleine Festung, the town citadel) and the first inmates arrived just a few days later on June 14. By the end of the war, over 32,000 prisoners, of whom 5,000 female, had passed through the small fortress.
