Wannsee Conference: The Master Plan for the "Final Solution"

The Nazis chose the serene setting for one of the most infamous meetings in world history, where they discussed their plans for the “Final Solution.”

On January 20, 1942 high ranking Nazi officials participated in the Wannsee Conference to provide a “rubber stamp” on plans that were already afoot to institute the “Final Solution.” In November 2021, at the Museum’s International Conference on World War II, Alexandra Richie, PhD, presented the following talk on the Wannsee Conference.
