The main goal of the Terezín Memorial was to create a modern exhibition that used a variety of appropriate means of expression and audiovisual elements to present the topic. In addition to the modern exhibition space, the intention was to build comfortable facilities for visitors that would correspond to current trends. It was the wish of the Terezín Memorial that a visit to the Ghetto Museum would become a powerful experience for visitors in every respect and stimulate their interest in history.

The Memorial to Suffering of the Nation (since 1964 the Terezín Memorial) was founded in 1947 as an institution whose mission was and still is to preserve the memory of the victims of racial and political persecution during the years of Nazi occupation, to bring their legacy closer to the public through museum, educational and research activities, and to care for the sites associated with the suffering of thousands of people during the years of World War II.
The Terezín Memorial was only able to fully develop its original mission under the conditions of a free society from the early 1990s onwards. Until then, all areas of its activities were limited. The new exhibition will present in detail the history of the Terezín Ghetto in 1941-1945 and at the same time outline the facts that led to its creation and the decimation of the Jewish population in general. The final part of the exhibition will reflect on themes from the post-war period, which will place the existence of the Terezín ghetto in a broader historical context.
