Standout Features:

  • Narrative video introduction
  • Interactive information map

The tragic events and figures surrounding The Holocaust continue to be the subject of interpretation by many experts today.

“Statistics and Catastrophe: Questioning Eichmann’s Numbers” is one great example – it exposes the Nazis’ murderous plans on a Pan-European scale through a systematic data visualization tool designed by Superskrypt.

Before uncovering the facts and statistics, the illustration starts with a video walkthrough of Adolf Eichmann’s life and the events leading up to the Holocaust. Then, it transitions to a full-screen map that indicates the areas covered by the mass destruction plan.

Each geolocation is labeled with the area’s name and the number of victims. Some locations are stamped with portraits of key people as well.

Plus, all elements are clickable. One click and users get a detailed report and history about the area, along with a brief analysis of the numbers involved.
