This building was originally the home of a German industrialist but it is remembered for being the place where meetings took place between the Nazi hierarchy and the SS during World War II. The main purpose of these meetings was to discuss and implement a strategy which would ultimately lead to the annihilation of the Jewish population of Europe.
The house is now used to commemorate the horror of the Jewish Holocaust. Its exhibits use actual photographs taken by the Germans of their inhumane treatment of the Jews. Many are extremely explicit and may cause some visitors distress.
The actual transcripts from the meetings are on view. They give the reader an inside look at the thought processes of these men, as they sought to devise plans for the 'Final Solution' to their perceived Jewish problem. The memorial chronicles the deportation, persecution and death of the Jewish people, not only in Germany but in other European cities and towns.
It is a place for deep contemplation, with many visitors leaving in a somber mood.
