CONSPIRACY (article first published : 2003-05-22)

M-Net will flight the movie Conspiracy on May 26 at 20h00. Starring Kenneth Branagh, Stanley Tucci, David Threlfall, Colin Firth, Barnaby Kay and Ben Daniels, it was directed in 2001 by Frank Pierson.

The 96 minute movie explores the historical recreation of the Nazis’ 1942 meeting where what was called the “Final Solution” was discussed. On January 15 in 1942, Adolf Hitler's right-hand men gathered together for a special meeting in Wannsee. Over the course of two hours they debated the pros and cons of Hitler's latest directive and the best way to implement it. By the time they left, they had laid the practical groundwork for the “Final Solution” - the execution of every Jewish person in Europe as their goal.

A transcript of the meeting has survived and that document provided the basis for the screenplay for Conspiracy which dramatises the meeting that led to the greatest crime of the 20th century.
