The "Ghetto Theresienstadt" was established in NW Czechoslavakia. Terezin (Theresienstadt) was founded as a garrison town in the late 18th Century, during the reign of Emperor Joseph II and named after his mother, Empress Maria Theresa.
In WW2 the town served as a ghetto to which the Nazis expelled 140,000 Jews, mostly from the "Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia", but also from central and western Europe. The ghetto was controlled by the Zentralamt für die Regelung der Judenfrage in Böhmen und Mähren, which was under the jurisdiction of the RSHA.
The commandants were: Siegfried Seidl, November 1941 - July 1943; Anton Burger, July 1943 - February 1944, and Karl Rahm, February 1944 - May 1945.

All of the above were selected from Adolf Eichmanns staff, and as well as SS men; Czech gendarmes served as ghetto guards. The small fortress near the ghetto was used as an internment camp for political prisoners.
Terezin was first mentioned in a Nazi document on 10 October 1941. The plan was to concentrate there most of the Jews from the "Protectorate", Germany and other western European countries, particularly prominent persons, old people, or those who had served in the German Army during WW1. The Jews should be transferred from Terezin gradually to the death camps of Aktion Reinhard and Auschwitz.
Terezin also served to camouflage the extermination of the Jews from world opinion, by presenting it as a model Jewish settlement.
