Observing a grim anniversary: The Wannsee Conference (20 Jan 1942)

I learned of the Wannsee Conference (Google | Wikipedia) for the first time this week via this Wired.com article. It was at this conference that a group of senior Nazi bureaucrats formulated the logistical plan required to dispose of the millions of Jews living in Germany and in German-occupied Poland and Western Russia at the time. We now know that this plan included the establishment of the numerous Nazi death camps at which millions of Jews, homosexuals, gypsies, and other groups of undesirables were killed and disposed of.

A chilling reminder of what was, not so long ago.
