The Department of Languages and Culture Studies, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Washington, D.C., is co-sponsoring a series of movie screenings, talks and discussions investigating Holocaust crimes through the lens of history, arts and ethics.
Scheduled events will center on the German TV docudrama “The Conference,” which aired earlier this year; it shows a reenactment of the real Wannsee Conference held Jan. 20, 1942, which resulted in the so-called “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” Kai-Uwe Werbeck, associate professor of German, will introduce the showing of the 2022 feature film “The Conference” at 4 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28, in the Popp Martin Student Union Movie Theater; a question-and-answer session will follow.
A screening of the documentary “Die Wannseekonferenz” is offered in addition to the feature film to give viewers the historical background of the events depicted in the feature film. The screening of the documentary is scheduled for 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 26, in the Cato College of Education Building, Room 419. 
On Tuesday, Sept. 27, there will be a reception to open the poster exhibit, “Holocaust Crimes Uncovered,” from 1 to 3 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Cato College of Education Building. It will present the real life stories of a number of Jewish academics who resisted the Germans and their collaborators by documenting, collecting and securing evidence of Holocaust crimes.
All events are open to the campus community and the public. However, seating is limited. For more information, email Bianca Potrykus ( or Susanne Gomoluch (
