In 1941, Adolf Hitler approved the “Final Solution to the Jewish Problem”, a plan for the systematic execution of all European Jews. The next year, on January 20th, 1942, 15 senior Nazi officials met in Wannsee, a Berlin suburb, to discuss the implementation of the Final Solution. SS General Reinhard Heydrich described a plan for the killing of more than 11 million Jewish Europeans. The officials at the meeting, without objection, coordinated the construction of concentration camps and transport of deportees. As a result of the plans made at the Wannsee Conference, more than 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis in the next three years.
