By the winter of 1942, Hitlers dream of Aryan supremacy had become a nightmare. His armies could be found freezing and starving on the Eastern front, and Americas fighting forces had just entered the war in the West. On January 20th of that year, 15 Nazi officials attended a conference at Wannsee on the outskirts of Berlin. Organized by SS Major Adolf Eichmann under the direction of the ruthless and efficient Chief of Security Reinhard Heydrich, it was to be a polite conference with food, wine and some debate, but beneath this veneer of manners lay an evil intent. By the meetings close, the fete of six million lives would be decided with the decision that the Jews of Europe were to be exterminated in what would become known as the Holocaust.

If you have any interest in WWII history this is a must see. Kenneth Branagh and his supporting cast are amazing and really bring this real story to life. The calculated way in which the 'Solution to the Jewish Question' was arrived at and the open way in which statistics from the experimentation/abuse of the disabled were used to help reach their final conclusions was disturbing.
