Nice quick way to get the user to see some of the key aspects of the War.  Showing the pan-germanism that Hitler esposed when taking the Sudetenland in the former Czechoslovakia to showing the suffering the civilian population of Leningrad.

World War II had a profound impact on so many places; the issues that contributed to these events and complex and inter-related.  This interactive with videos, pictures and commentary is a veritable treasure trove of resources for teachers and students alike.

The "known" world is a very slippery, problematic concept.  What is known to some is not known to others and this establishes a Meditterranean 'core' area as the heart of the known world.  Nonetheless, this is still a fascinating GIF that shows the expansion of exploration and globalization.

This is really neat

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 24, 2014 7:38 PM

Often times I find it hard to think of history as simply a recolection of time. Youspend your childhood looking at timelines and learning history linearly you often forget that this is not the case. I found this work to be very asthetically pleasing and helpful as well.
