RISE AND DOWNFALL OF THE GERMAN 3. REICH INFOGRAPHIC

This project was created during my studies and derives from my deep interest in history. The info­graphic is organ­ized as a time­line, which depicts the changes of the borders and front lines of Germany under the leader­ship of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis from 1933 until 1945. The book consists of one long accor­dion-fold connec­tion of letter-sized pages. Folded out, the project reaches a length of 49 feet visual­izing the duration of suffer­ing during the war.

Selected dates, with short explana­tions, give an over­view about impor­tant events during those years. The strong red color fields identify Germany as the aggres­sor, which spreads like a virus, showing the area controlled by the Nazis. Thin lines guide through the beginn­ing of the time­line to the end. The focus stays on the growth and decline of the red fields.
