During the Second World War, the Sudetenland border areas of today’s Czechia were part of Germany. The rest of Czechia itself was called Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia. Some 82,000 Jews were deported from that area. Most of them stayed temporarily at the Theresienstadt Ghetto, before being moved on to other places. Initially, many of them were sent to locations in the Baltics and to transit camps and ghettos in the Lublin District. Later, many of them ended up in the Auschwitz Camp.
