Oct. 10 People tried to figure out if there was an order Meeting took place, the Villa at Wannsee- lake outside of Berlin - discuss deportation of Jews from all over Europe to Death camps - meeting was important: o Reinhard Heydrich- one of the chief architects of the “Final Solution” o Adolf Eichmann- managed deportations to death camps o Things were not debated; Heydrich outlined whole meeting New general solution to Jewish question, noted that although up until now the Nazi regime had officially said they wanted Jews to emigrate outside of Europe, this had been impossible, so regime would favor evacuation of all Jews to the east Jews should do work until they died; if there were any remaining, they’d be dealt with accordingly o Technical questions- how would they implement these in various countries, countries that they were allies with? Had to talk to leaders o Questions about how to settle disputes between different ministries of the government o Who’s going to manage what? - Meeting lasted 85 minutes; more you look at notes, realize that not a lot was decided. He was widening the circle of knowledge but key decisions had already been made. o Topic for today: how had those decisions been made? - Hitler o What Kershaw (author about autobiography about Hitler) describes is a habit that Hitler had of never exactly explicitly telling people to do specific things to Jews inside or outside of Germany o Makes it clear about an overall vision that he has; his absolute passion/ hatred of Jews as true enemy of German people
