Conspiracy is a historical recreation of the 1942 Wannsee Conference in which the Nazis and SS leaders gathered in a Berlin suburb to discuss the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” In the sublime surroundings of a German country house, those assembled mingled for drinks, enjoyed a first-class buffet lunch, and debated whether execution or sterilization would be the most efficient option for eliminating an entire race.
