Eichmann in Jerusalem, 2006:page 80 (Whereupon [Reinhard] Heydrich, perhaps also in the drunkenness of his power, simply ordered the immediate evacuation of the native Czech population from Theresienstadt, to make room for the Jews. Eichmann was sent there to look things over. Great disappointment: the Bohemian fortress town on the banks of the Eger was far too small. We know from better sources than Eichmann's faulty memory that Theresienstadt, from the beginning was designed by Heydrich to serve as a special ghetto for certain privileged categories of Jews, chiefly, but not exclusively, from Germany -- Jewish functionaries, prominent people, war veterans with high decorations, invalids, the Jewish partners of mixed marriages, and German Jews over sixty-five years of age (hence the nickname Altersghetto.) page 82 (Theresienstadt actually came to serve another purpose, that of a showplace for the outside world -- it was the only ghetto or camp to which representatives of the International Red Cross were admitted.) page 225 (Theresienstadt, the old-age ghetto on Reich territory.)
    • found: Wikipedia, 8 January 2018(Theresienstadt concentration camp, also referred to as Theresienstadt ghetto, was a concentration camp established by the SS during World War II in the garrison city of Terezín (German: Theresienstadt), located in German-occupied Czechoslovakia. Tens of thousands of people died there, some killed outright and others dying from malnutrition and disease. More than 150,000 other persons (including tens of thousands of children) were held there for months or years, before being sent by rail transports to their deaths at Treblinka and Auschwitz extermination camps in occupied Poland, as well as to smaller camps elsewhere.) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theresienstadt_concentration_camp
