The Wannsee Conference (Hitler's Final Solution: The Wannsee Conference) (Die Wannseekonferenz) (1984)
Starring (View all)
Friedrich G. Beckhaus
This film focuses on a gathering in Berlin on January 20, 1942, of prominent Nazis — including Reinhard Heydrich and Adolph Eichmann. Their agenda: to discuss the implementation of the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” In 85 minutes, these military leaders, bureaucrats of the Third Reich, and civilians consider in a businesslike manner how to most efficiently eliminate millions of human beings. Directed by Heinz Schirk, filmed in the actual location where it happened, and based on historical documents, this real-time recreation captures the qualities of a horrific nightmare.
Release date: 19 December 1984
