A Jaw-Dropping Visualization of the Human Cost of World War II

When the numbers are presented like this, they are not likely to be forgotten.

Neil Halloran’s stunning video, “The Fallen of World War II,” visualizes the staggering number of casualities from the war. The captivating 18-minute documentary (it’s worth watching every second), makes the enormity of human loss more alarmingly comprehensible than just looking at the data. Watching the numbers climb is unnerving, especially around the six-minute mark, when the Soviet death toll just keeps going up, seemingly forever. The video covers military deaths, civillian fatalities, and how WWII relates to conflicts before and since, leaving viewers with a picture of war they are not likely to forget.
