New York times, Jan. 21, 2022: in an article entitled, "Chilling reminders of Nazi blueprint for murder" on the front page (Wannsee Conference; On Jan. 20, 1942, 15 high-ranking officials of the Nazi bureacracy met in a lakeside villa in Wannsee, on the western edge of Berlin. There was only one point on the agenda: "The organizational, logistical and material steps for a final solution of the Jewish question in Europe." Planning the Holocaust took all of 90 minutes; The host on that January day was Reinhard Heydrich, the powerful chief of the security service and the SS; the men Heydrich invited were senior civil servants and party officials. Most of them were in their 30s, nine of them had law degrees, more than half had Ph.D.s.; Adolf Eichmann, head of the department for "Jewish affairs and eviction" in the Interior Ministry, who would later organize the deportations to the death camps, was asked to take minutes at the meeting)
