** BlueAndOrangeMorality: The fact that the Nazis see any moral objections to their plans as annoying inconveniences, and the fact that [[PragmaticVillainy many only bring up practical reasons not to go through with The Holocaust]], make them seem to be not merely evil, but utterly ''alien'' in thought and deed.

* KarmaHoudini: As explained in the WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, the British and American (OMGUS, Office of Military Government United States) occupation authorities [[EnforcedTrope ensured that]] most of the participants served prison terms of no more than six years, were acquitted at trial and went free, or were never brought to trial and charged with anything in the first place. This was partly to save money, but mostly to preserve the upper-echelons of the German civil service and military so that Germany would be as cooperative and effective an alliance partner (against the nascent Eastern Bloc) as possible. To this end they also blocked some extradition requests by Communist Czechoslovakia, Poland, et al. since they tended to execute their ''Génocidaires''.

* DirtyCommunists: In-universe, the Nazis view all Jews as this and Germany's war with the U.S.S.R is mentioned in passing. Roland Freisler, however, argues that the Russian people themselves are not communist at all, but will simply accept whatever role is forced upon them provided they are given the basic needs of survival.

-->'''Freisler''': ''The Russian is not a Communist, my friend. The Russian does not give a damn who runs things. I have lived amongst them. The Russian only cares he has a bottle of vodka to suck and some form of domestic animal life to fuck. Then he will happily sit in shit his whole life. That is his politics. I know those people. That is the distinction. I absolve the Jews of that.''

** When Stuckart goes on a rant about how ignorant and misinformed the Nazi Party's antisemitism is, Klopfer not-so-subtly threatens to report Stuckart to a higher authority. Stuckart brushes him off, saying that the Party has no dominion over the government, but Heydrich takes him aside and intimates to him that yes, Klopfer does have that kind of pull and yes, the Party has Hitler's ear over the government.

** Eichmann removing the guest book and burning the one page used is a clear indication from the beginning that the conference is being kept as [[IncrediblyLamePun off the books]] as possible. He also frequently motions the stenographer to pause his recording when the conversation veers into anything that could be clearly construed in a courtroom as [[TitleDrop conspiracy]] to murder.

** Encapsulated perfectly by Doctor Meyer:
--> "If your method of disposing all the Jews diverts military units, and rolling stock from the Eastern Front, then it is a stupid choice. I'm not arguing priority, but method and expediency."

* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Varies from character to character. Some are a pretty good fit for their real life counterpart, but for instance the dashing Creator/ColinFirth plays the ugly-looking [[http://www.holocaustchronicle.org/staticpages/HolocaustScans/HiRes/1935/19350008000006 Wilhelm Stuckart]]. Inverted with Gerhard Klopfer, who was [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/Bundesarchiv_Bild_119-06-44-12%2C_Gerhard_Klopfer.jpg perfectly ordinary looking]] in real life, but is played by an [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-90BTffvk1go/UlPycHKEHfI/AAAAAAAAMt8/-xpVvk_SeaQ/s1600/10.png obese, unpleasant-looking actor]].

Starring an EnsembleCast, including Creator/KennethBranagh, Creator/ColinFirth and Creator/StanleyTucci, the film follows SS-Obersturmbannführer (Lieutenant Colonel) Adolf Eichmann as he organizes the meeting itself. Represented are the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Security Police (under Heydrich), Criminal Police, Regional Security Chief for the ''Generalgouvernement'', a representative of Hans Frank's ''Generalgouvernement'', Alfred Rosenberg's Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territories, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Justice, the Foreign Office, the Party Chancellory, the Reich Chancellory, the SS Race and Settlement Office, and the Luftwaffe's Four Year Plan Organisation]]. All have been recalled to the Berlin suburb of Wannsee from their duty stations for a conference, but very few have heard what the conference is actually meant to cover. After a round of genial introductions and conversation over appetizers, SS-Obergruppenführer (General-equivalent) Reinhard Heydrich, the conference's ranking member, arrives and explains that they are there to discuss what to do with 'The Jews'.

* ForeignRemake: An English-language remake of the German film ''Der Wanseekonferenz'' which covered the same event. Aside from casting several actors with more international credentials, the difference between the two is most noticeable in the RuleOfDrama: in the German version, the Nazis are pretty much on the same page about the Holocaust, whereas in the English version there is more open disagreement and infighting.
