The Amsterdam of Anne Frank
Everything about the Het Amsterdam van Anne Frank time-line is beautifully realised, including its use of static and interactive Google Maps.
The time-line explores the history of Amsterdam before and during German occupation in World War II. The time-line includes excerpts from Anne Frank's diary alongside historical photographs and videos of Amsterdam during the occupation.
If you click on an entry in the time-line it will open in a lightbox style window. Most of the entries are geo-located using a a static Google Map. If you click on the static map a larger Google Map will open to show the entry's location in Amsterdam.
