On January 16th I had the privilege to attend a zoom conference on the Wannsee conference, which was organized by the Ghetto Fighter’s House museum.
It was The first program in the four part series “Rethinking the ‘Final Solution’ and the Wannsee Conference” marked the 80th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference that took place on January 20th, 1942. In his opening remarks, Dr. Tamir Hod presents a synopsis of the crucial meeting that would decide the fate of millions of Jews in Europe. He discloses archival material related to the subject that was discovered after the fall of the Soviet Block. In his presentation “The Wannsee Conference Now and Then” Dr. Matthias Hass, Head of the Academic Department of the House of the Wannsee Conference Memorial Site and Education Center discusses the activities of the memorial and how the history of the pivotal meeting that sealed the implementation of the “Final Solution” is told to visitors.
