The Wannsee Conference with Historian Professor Sir Richard Evans


The Wannsee Conference formalised the Nazis’ policy of the extermination of Jews in occupied Europe. On 20 January 1942, leading Nazi officials met at the Wannsee Conference Villa in Wannsee, a southwestern suburb of Berlin. The conference had been called to discuss and coordinate a cheaper, more efficient, and permanent solution to the Nazis’ "Jewish problem". The conference was attended by senior government and SS officials, and coordinated by Reinhard Heydrich.
