"Branagh shines in ‘Conspiracy’"

By Gary Arnold/ The Washington Times

The filmmakers manage to summarize years of anti-Semitic debate and brutality in Hitlerian circles during a 90-minute “working luncheon” whose upshot is the imperative to pursue mass extermination without further delay or second thoughts...

A dramatic recreation of the 1942 Wannsee Conference, in which Nazi and SS leaders gathered in a Berlin suburb to discuss the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question".  Lead by SS-General Reinhard Heydrich, a group of high ranking German officials came to the historic and far reaching decision to exterminate Jews in what would come to be known as the Holocaust.

  • First aired 19 May 2001

  • The film's closing epilogue states that Undersecretary Martin Luther's (Kevin McNally) copy of the Wansee Conference minutes was discovered in the files of the German Foreign office by American Investigators in 1947.  It is the only record of the Wansee Conference meeting in existence that survives today.
