Of Berlin’s many memorials and reminders of the reign of the Nazis, few are as chilling as this elegant, turn-of-the-century mansion on the tranquil shores of Wannsee, a lake on the outskirts of Berlin. On January 20th 1942, Reinhard Heydrich, Adolf Eichmann and 13 other officers of the Third Reich’s secret service and SS met in this house and agreed on what they called “the final solution of the Jewish question”.

The Wannsee Conference (German: Wannseekonferenz) was a meeting of senior officials of Nazi Germany, held in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee on 20 January 1942 during World War II. The purpose of the conference was to ensure the cooperation of administrative leaders of various departments in the implementation of the final solution to the Jewish question. The conference, called by Chief of the Reich Main Security Office (RSHA) Reinhard Heydrich, was attended by representatives from several government ministries, including state secretaries from the Foreign Office, the justice, interior, and state ministries, and representatives from the Schutzstaffel (SS).
