Wannsee_villa "Buchenwald, according to Freud, once the light was let in, would become a soccer field, fat children would learn flower-arranging and solfeggio in the strangling rooms.

- Thomas Pynchon, The Crying of Lot 49

Then in 1947, long after the Nuremberg IMT ended, the minutes of a conference held on January 20, 1942 at a villa in Wannsee, a district of Berlin, were found. At this conference, the plans for the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" had been discussed
