Wannsee Conference ~ January 20, 1942

As if for a routine business meeting 15 high ranking Nazis met in this house to finalize plans for the "Endlösung", the deportation and extermination of all European Jews, the monstrous crime that anticipated the murder of 11 million human beings.

Does the house still stand?

Yes. It is now a Holocaust Memorial and Museum.

I see that Germany has been heavily pummeled by snow of late -- I hope you and yours are alright over there.

Thanks for your concern, C. Yes, it's been mighty cold here for weeks, close to 0. Now it's warming up a bit and snow has been falling continually. Our home is warm and we have someone who does the snow shovelling. That would be too much for us at our age! Greetings, Charles
