In this house – a former industrialist’s villa built in 1915 and used from 1941 to 1945 by the SS as a conference centre and guest house – on 20th January 1942, fifteen high-ranking representatives of the SS, the NSDAP and various ministries met to discuss their cooperation in the planned deportation and murder of the European Jews. 

The Memorial Site offers exhibitions and a number of possibilities for studying the persecution and murder of the European jews and the history of National socialism, its prehistory and consequences.
