The House of the Wannsee Conference…

IMG_3753

We spent yesterday afternoon travelling out to Wannsee, a suburb of Berlin to visit the Museum and Memorial Site of the Wannsee Conference.  The House of the Wannsee Conference is known as the location where high-ranking German officials planned out the details of the “Final Solution” to rid Europe of all the Jews through genocide.  It was a very thorough and detailed exhibition with tonnes of information and very interesting.  So horrible to think of the tragedies that were planned out here by fireplaces and with brandies by the elite officials in such a beautiful setting.  The area surrounds a lovely lake with magnificent villas all around.  So incongruous and such a contrast to the testimonies contained within the building now.

  1. Thank you for those lovely photos. You make a good point.
