C4I Germany organizes international commemoration in Berlin
70 years since the Wannsee Conference 20 January 1942
In December 1941, SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, head of the Nazi’s Reich Security Main Office, summoned 15 Nazi leaders to a secret meeting at a villa in Wannsee outside Berlin. The meetings was held on 20th January 1942. Heydrich’s objective: to agree a program for the implementation of Hitler’s vision of the "final solution", the mass extermination of the 11 million Jews living in German-occupied Europe.
The mass execution of Jews in Europe had started much earlier. The Gestapo’s Einsatzgruppen had already carried out mass executions in Ukraine (such as Babi Yar, where on September 29–30, 1941, 33,771 Jews were killed in a single operation), Poland and elsewhere. Adolf Eichmann was already experimenting with gassing techniques. Read more

Prayer Letter January/February 2012
Dear Israel friends, As a preparation to writing this first Prayer letter of 2012, I reread all Letters of 2011. Part of the April/May prayer letter I want to repeat here, because it is a word that many intercessors see as a commissioning: Vigilance. “Be on guard! Be alert!”(Mark 13:33) “What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’” (Mark 13:37) These things Jesus tells us in the ‘discourse on the end of the age’. Go to prayer letter
