Twentieth Century Europe on Google Maps

In Europa

In Europa is a Dutch television series that looks at the history of Europe in the Twentieth Century. To complement the series a Google Map has been produced that looks at some of the defining events that shaped the continent in the last century.

Above the map is a timeline that enables the user to navigate through the years. The years that have content are shown in red. When you click on a year the relevant map markers for that date are shown on the map. As well as text, the map includes pictures and video clips from the television series.

The map is in Dutch only.

Great stuff. Would be interesting if all (historic) TV productions were placed om GoogleMaps.
