Theresienstadt/Terezin Concentration Camp

Has anyone visited Theresienstadt/Terezin concentration camp outside of Prague? I found out about it from a fascinating story on 60 Minutes, and was surprised to find that it was outside of Prague. We are going to Prague in August, and I'm interested in this camp because of this story I watched about it. Has anyone visited there? Any tips about transportation from Prague, certain things not to miss there, English guided tours to take, etc.?

"Outside" of Prague is a very American term in this context. It's about an hour North of Prague, pretty much half-way between Prague and Dresden. I would search for a guided bus tour from Prague. Have you asked your hotel already?

We used wittmann-tours.com, which took us on a 6 hour guided day trip from Prague to Terezin.
