The Wansee Conference

In January 1942 high Nazi officials met to discuss the "final solution of the Jewish question," in the Berlin suberb, Wansee. Known as the Wansee Conference, this meeting did not begin the killing of the Jews, but in it the Nazis articulated their plans clearly and determined on a systematic method to carry them out.
