    We returned in the early hours of this morning. Thanks again to all who attended and helped to make the trip a memorable and at the appropriate times, enjoyable event. Look forward to seeing more of you and others, on future such trips.

    The image shown in the attachment below was taken at the starting point, outside the former Gestapo HQ in Prague. Later, the tour party took in 8 concentration camps (inc. the Theresienstadt Camp-Ghetto) and various other related sites.

    Regards,

    Carl

    Patently, yes. I am sure that some of the tour party contingent will post related imagery at a later date.

    Here are a couple, but I did not take many of that "type" of image, mainly the camps themselves. It was a top tour led by a top gent! Leon.

    Who are the guys in the photo, are they all forum members? I know the one in the white shirt is you Carl, but who are the rest?? The guy in the shades (centre) looks like he's a Bond villian. I bet he lives in a hollowed out volcano.......

    If the group will allow me, I'll post an (L-R) later Ned. There are three forum members present in the image, including myself...and, to the best of my knowledge, no Bond villains from Nelson Country

    I must add, all the guys who attended the tour were great company and superb tour party members.

    Day 2 Gros Rosen. Carl can be seen taking us through step by step using a fantastic model of the camp.

    Pictured below, as follows:

    1) Just outside the camp boundary, large stone blocks from the nearby quarry mark the entrance to the camp.
    2) The camp road and approach to the main gate building.
    3-4) Two views of the fencing and reconstructed guard tower at the site.
    5) The extensive model of KZ-Gro-Rosen, located within the visitor's building (former SS-Kche und Kantine)
    6-7) Two views of the adjacent stone quarry, where thousands of prisoners performed forced labour duties.
    8) The main gate and entrance building.
