Villa of the Wannsee Conference

The 20th January of 1942 in a villa nearby the Wannsee in Berlin a meeting was held by high nazi officials and SS-officers to discuss on the solution for the 'Jewish problem'. The outcome would result in the deportation of millions of people from the West to the East where they were killed.

Today there is a permanent display on the circumstances that have led to the Wannsee conference, the conference itself and the consequences.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
