    I rented this from Netflix this week, and originally saw it a few times on HBO when it was on, about 3 years ago.

    Conspiracy

    (2001)
    On January 20, 1942, at the height of the World War II, 15 government officials and SS Commanders attended a conference on the outskirts of Berlin. It was a simple meeting, which -- by the end -- would decide the fate of 6 million lives. This BBC movie is based on the only surviving record of that meeting, which would stand as the blueprint for Hitler's final solution. Kenneth Branagh won an Emmy for his performance as Reinhard Heydrich.

    Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci
    Director: Frank Pierson
    Genre: Drama
    Format: DVD

    [​IMG]Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.

    It's superb, especially Kenneth Branagh. Highly recommended.

    Wolfgang Benz writes of this ( The Wannsee Conference) in 'The Holocaust.' a straightforward telling of the meeting and the way in which evil hides from the surface of things.

    "The main hypothesis concerning group-think is this: The more amiability and esprit de corps among the members of the in-group of policy makers the greater the danger that independent thinking will be replaced by group-think, which is likely to result in irrational and dehumanizing actions directed at out-groups." from 'Sanctions for Evil;' Sanford and Comstock, 1971

    The BEST CONSPIRACIES happen out in the open and often with the approval of the clueless.

    FREE TRADE is a damned good example of that.
