On 20 January 1942, 15 men organised the decided murder of eleven million Jews. This happened during a business breakfast at the Villa Minoux on Berlin’s Wannsee.
This break with civilisation is linked to the names and photos of these 15 men. But today – 80 years later – these images have faded. Perhaps only a few historians and experts could still give a detailed personal description of these conference table perpetrators.
Nevertheless, the memory of these 15 perpetrators is the predominant central component of the remembrance of the conference; their victims are mostly referred to in a depersonalised manner as ‘the victims’.
This project counteracts this depersonalisation of the victims.
