Visualization about right-wing violence in East Germany.

For several regions in Germany, there exists NGOs that collect data about right-wing attacks and present on their websites. Unfortunately, their presentation is not machine-readable. So I first scraped the data off their websites and then created alternative access to their data.

I created a map because all incidents have geographic references. The reader can then get information about incidents by hovering over them. This work was featured on a popular German blog Das Kraftfuttermischwerk.
