They came to Wannsee as high-ranking leaders of Germany’s World War II effort. Two hours later, they left as co-conspirators in the murder of millions of Jews. This is the story of the top-secret Nazi meeting in which fifteen men debated–and ultimately agreed upon–the merits of Hitler’s ‘Final Solution,’ the extermination of the entire Jewish population of Europe. Based on the lone surviving transcript of the meeting’s minutes and shot in real time, this stunning drama recreates one of the most infamous gatherings in world history, and depicts the intense emotions and chilling dialogue that permeated the room that day. Kenneth Branagh and Stanley Tucci star in this gripping drama.
