The Fallen of World War II is an interactive documentary that examines the human cost of the second World War and the decline in battle deaths in the years since the war. The 15-minute data visualization uses cinematic storytelling techniques to provide viewers with a fresh and dramatic perspective of a pivotal moment in history.
The film follows a linear narration, but it allows viewers to pause during key moments to interact with the charts and dig deeper into the numbers.
All I can say it wow! This website is both thought provoking and somewhat disturbing as it brings into context using visual data, the deaths in World War II, the information you are taking in hits you directly in the heart. The documentary is interactive and gives you time to pause and look further.
