HHhH A Novel Laurent Binet, translated from the French by Sam Taylor Farrar, Straus and Giroux: 336 pp., $26 -- Laurent Binet tackles the story of a Nazi and the two Czechoslovakian war heroes who set out to assassinate him and writes a marvelous, charming, engaging novel. But he's not quite sure how he feels about that. The awkwardly titled "HHhH" won the 2010 Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, the debut-novel version of France's highest literary prize. Binet is a history teacher who had previously published a memoir, and the very project of writing a historical novel sits uneasily with him, a tension that is an essential part of the book.

Television dramatizes history mostly in isolation. No context, driftwood in a vast ocean. So viewers have an unusual opportunity this weekend, if a painful one. Saturday brings HBO's "Conspiracy," an uncomfortably real, brilliantly understated reprise of the Jan. 20, 1942, gathering at which arch criminals Reinhard Heydrich, Adolf Eichmann and 13 other important Nazis coldly addressed the problem of "the Jew."

On Tuesday, Jan. 20, 1942, at a mansion in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee, 15 key representatives of the SS, the Nazi Party and the Third Reich met at the request of Reinhard Heydrich, head of the Security Police and the Secret Service. The meeting lasted only 85 minutes, yet by the time it was over the "Final Solution" had been set in motion, decreeing the systematic extermination in German-occupied Europe of all Jews and all others decreed undesirable by the Nazis.

West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl bowed his head in sorrow and atonement Wednesday at a memorial to Czechoslovak villagers massacred by Nazi forces during World War II. Kohl, the first West German leader to visit Czechoslovakia in 15 years, made the short journey from Prague to Lidice to pay homage to the hundreds of inhabitants slaughtered in revenge for the killing of one of Adolf Hitler's top aides, Reinhard Heydrich.

I agree with your editorial "Politics and Guttersnipes" (June 8) that if you're to throw mud at all, you should make it stick. Have you noticed, however, how much of the mud has been slung in the direction of Democrats lately? (Former House Speaker) Jim Wright has resigned, probably with good reason; then there was (former Democratic Whip) Tony Coehlo too. And attacks have started on Bill Gray of Philadelphia. One begins to wonder if Republicans are such bastions of virtue that they are above such reproach.

History forgotten is history repeated, and "All Steps Necessary," Michael Halperin's cautionary tale about the post-Kristallnacht doings at Field Marshal Hermann Goering's house in 1938, leaves no trenchant chill untilled. This resolute Inkwell Theater production at 2100 Square Feet depicts a top-echelon Third Reich meeting in a Berlin shattered by the national wave of pogroms led by Nazi storm troopers three days earlier.

Former Nazi SS Gen. Gerhard Klopfer, the last surviving member of the 1942 Berlin conference that plotted the "final solution" to systematically kill European Jews, has died at age 81.
