Where is the Haus of the Wannseekonferenz?

Haus der Wannseekonferenz

This museum deals with the organisation, background and implementation of the "Final Solution" ( i.e. the decision to deport and murder the European Jews under the Nazi Regime). A meeting of the same name was held in this villa on January 20th, 1942. Today, the site is a museum with a permanent exhibition, guided tours in German and English, special exhibits, and a media center with a reference library, videotapes and an audiovisual collection. - It is a gruesome subject, but the museum is excellent. So are the guided tours. Highly recommended.
