Orders and Initiatives (September 1941-March 1942)
"Orders and Initiatives" highlights the crucial decision-making period of the
Holocaust, encompassing the secret plans of Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and
Reinhard Heydrich. At a conference at Wannsee in January 1942, the participants
work toward finalizing their goal-the systematic genocide of an entire people.
The first gas chambers are built at Auschwitz and the use of Zyklon B is
developed. German doctors arrive to oversee each transport, deciding who should
live and who should die.
