Since 1945 and the end of the Second World War, the number of violent inner-state crises and conflicts has risen steadily. Now that all contemporary witnesses have died out, the horrors of the world wars seem to have been largely forgotten. 75 years after the first atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear war seems to be closer than ever before and the nuclear arsenals are larger than ever. The same phenomenon can also be observed in nuclear energy disasters or oil spills. As long as the shock is in your bones, you do everything you can to make sure it never happens again. As soon as some time has passed, one begins to steer again in the direction of ruin. How long this takes depends on the severity of the event. This archive should prevent exactly this from happening. A collection of the horrors caused by man, against the horrors caused by man. So that all this never happens again, as demanded after the Second World War.
The archive should be a place where everyone can make a contribution. It was initiated and designed by Jonas von Arb, graphic and interaction designer and student in visual communication at the School of Art and Design Basel.

This project lives from its community. It is dependent on the input from outside. So if you think you have an idea which event should be added to the archive, write a mail to email@example.com. We need at least the place, the time, a short summary and some data. Anything you know we will gladly add to the archive. If you give your name, you will be noted as the author. Also if you have an idea how this website could be improved, this is the right address.
