Digital atlas of Nazi crimes

Digitaler Atlas der NS-Verbrechen

Digital Atlas of Nazi Crimes / Nazi Crimes Atlas

PROJECT
With a bilingual “Digital Atlas of Nazi Crimes”, the project visualizes around 20,000 judicially documented cases of Nazi crimes from the years 1933 to 1945 at 8,000 locations in today’s federal territory. The publication marks the 80th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

The project is developing a bilingual app for smartphones by 2024/25. This app will function as a geo-referenced atlas and provide information on 20,000 judicially recorded Nazi crimes at 8,000 locations in Germany. 80 years after the end of the Second World War, the atlas ensures complete and simple research into Nazi violence for the first time by summarizing detailed information from the files in a compact form. This covers all aspects of Nazi crimes, including crime scenes, groups of perpetrators and victims. For many, the extent of local crime becomes clear for the first time.

The atlas is aimed at educational institutions, local initiatives, universities and international users. The main focus of this digital tool is on participation and active collaboration. Users can deepen and expand the data independently. To this end, there is an editorial system that coordinates and publishes extended searches. Online training courses and specialist conferences deepen the handling. The atlas serves both as a historical reference work and as a platform for civic engagement and historical-political education. Cooperation with networks extends the reach to the whole of Germany.

One goal is to activate at least 50 initiatives by 2025. The financing and installation of the software ensures long-term operation and guarantees continuous further development of the content.
