Several years ago, the Terezin Memorial opened to the public a prayer room from the ghetto times at 17 Dlouha Street in Terezin. In the attic above the prayer room, remains of a “closet”, small dormitories were discovered.Closets served as a kind of emergency accommodation for Terezin ghetto prisoners. They were made on the lofts of residential and farm buildings in Terezin. Being very small, only a few inmates could stay there together at the same time. However, the closets provided its dwellers with at least a little privacy in contrast to mass quarters (see the quarter replica in the Magdeburg barracks). The premises found above the prayer room were reconstructed into a space similar to that of the ghetto times, and now they are part of the Terezin Memorial expositions.
