We participate to the LODLAM challenge for data visualisations, tools, mashups, meshups, and all types of use cases for Linked Open Data in libraries, archives, and museums. The challenge is organized in the context of the Fourth International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums (LODLAM) summit that will be held in Venice, Italy, at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini June 28-29 , 2017.

Our entry is a stand-alone tool that takes in input the data made available by the Contemporary Jewish Documentation Center (CDEC) in Milan and published in Linked Open Data format to show the movements of the Italian victims of Shoah. To this end, we used the SPARQL endpoint to collect biographical data together with information about the persecution and deportation of each victim. The places of birth, arrest, detention, deportation to a Nazi camp, transfer, and return after liberation (if available) were georeferenced and associated to the corresponding date. All the movements are then displayed in an interactive interface.
