The Map as History, provided by a team of French historians, is committed to innovate the way of learning about history. The team uses a series of animated maps to bring history to life, often focusing on a single region to illustrate developments over time. They also create timelines to further clarify and contextualize historical progress. The Fifteen maps on the Second World War, provided in English and French, start with Hitler's invasion of Poland in September 1939, which led to the outbreak of the Second World War, and end with the fall of Berlin to the Red Army in May 1945 and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in early August 1945. The site on the Second World War includes a free preview of two animated maps, the first on “The War Goes Global, June 1941-1942,” the second on “The Final Solution (The Holocaust, The Shoah).”
