75th Anniversary of the Wannsee Conference

On January 20, 1942,  high-ranking Nazi party and German government leaders, including the secretaries of the Foreign Ministry and Justice Departments, gathered at a villa in Wannsee, Germany.  They assembled at the villa to discuss the “final solution to the Jewish question in Europe.”

During the making of “Berlin Calling,” we visited this location. It was a place that turned our stomachs, to be in the room that decided the fate of the Waserman family. Decisions were made there that took millions of lives and left others broken – and that trauma is handed down for generations.

Never forget how the decisions of a few can affect the future of many.
