The historical recreation of the 1942 Wannsee Conference, in which Nazi and SS leaders gathered in a Berlin suburb to discuss the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question". Lead by SS-General Reinhard Heydrich, this group of high ranking German officials came to the historic and far reaching decision that the Jews of Europe were to be exterminated in what would come to be known as the Holocaust.

As Heydrich's staff car approaches the Wannsee mansion, a National Identifier plate can clearly be seen, on a holder on the back bumper (showing a 'D' for Deutschland). The country of registration identifier plate (known as the Distinguishing Sign of Vehicle in International Traffic) was introduced by the United Nations in 1949, seven years after the events of the film. In the very next shot the oval holder for the national identifier is still on the bumper, but the D plate itself has disappeared. See more

SS.Col. Eberhard 'Karl' Schöngarth
I thoroughly approve and I'm anxious to start. I look forward to working with your office, and yours, Colonel.
