The Wannsee Conference Memorial Exhibit is a chilling documentation of the systematic process which led to the Holocaust.
A permanent exhibition opened in this imposing Wannsee Mansion as ‘The Memorial and Educational Site House of the Wannsee Conference’ on 20 January 1992, on the very day of the 50th anniversary of the Wannsee Conference. It was in a room in this magnificent Villa that a group of high-ranking Nazi officials headed by Reinhard Heydrich, Head of Reich Security met on January 20, 1942 to organise and implement the Final Solution to the Jewish Question. The Wannsee Conference Memorial Exhibit is a chilling documentation of the systematic process which led to the Holocaust.
There are three areas of interest for visitors. The permanent exhibition is located on the ground floor of the Villa entitled the Wannsee Konferenz and the Extermination of European Jewry. The exhibition focuses on the events leading up to and relating to the Holocaust.
The Memorial exhibition includes a reconstruction of the room where the discussions took place the minutes of the conference taken by Adolf Eichmann and the photographs of the civil servants and SS officers involved. The rest of the exhibition is a chronicle of the events and the horrors surrounding the Holocaust from the deportations to the exterminations in the concentration camps.
Leaflets, books and material is available in English.
