At the Wannsee Conference on January 20, 1942, senior Nazi officials meet to determine the manner in which the so-called "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" can be best implemented.
Most of the conversations at the beginning of the film, in particular the small talk between offices, the dialogue between the SS and the secretaries, and the emergency phone call regarding a transport of Jews in the east, is entirely dramatic license. The actual minutes for the conference begin after Heydrich convened the meeting - exactly what the Nazi officers were doing before Heydrich arrived is not historically known and is dependent on second hand testimony and speculation.
There were women... children...
Reinhard Heydrich: Women and children are Jews too.
Adolf Eichmann is shown in the film wearing a Waffen-SS infantry officer's uniform complete with the SS runes unit patch. Eichmann was in fact a security police colonel and therefore should have displayed a blank security service collar patch with green police piping.
