A country club concentration camp?

     Located in Czechoslovakia, Theresienstadt was not intended to be a death camp; the Nazis did not exterminate Jews there. The camp mainly served as a stopping point for Jews on their way to Nazi death camps further east. As in other concentration camps, conditions in Theresienstadt were terrible. Overcrowding and bad conditions killed thousands of prisoners and disease killed thousands more. Only one in eight new arrivals survived.  It was most definitely not a country club, but more of a detour on the way to death.
