The Wannsee Conference was a meeting of top Nazi officials that was held in a suburb of Berlin on Jan. 20, 1942. The conference was the planning workshop that signaled the start of the most famous act of genocide in modern history – the Holocaust.

Organized in spring 2011 and based in WCU’s Department of History, the Carolina Round Table on the World Wars addresses various aspects of the era of the world wars of the 20th century.
