Abstract (English):The final contribution examines the production history of Conspiracy (2001), a dramatization of the 1942 Wannsee Conference. The author uses archival sources such as script drafts, meeting minutes, and correspondence in order to trace just how filmmakers create historical images. This piece critically assesses Conspiracy as a case study for how filmmakers responsibly make complex and difficult histories accessible to wide audiences while largely avoiding cliché and sentimentality. Furthermore, as an Anglo-American production, Conspiracy also serves as an example of how Americans have depicted a key event from “German” history that had global impact. (DIPF/Orig.)
