Abstract

This paper explores Visual Storytelling (VS) as a means of conveying historical narratives, with a particular focus on Heritage related to Nazi Persecution (HNP). We refine and augment existing design spaces in information visualization to broaden the scope and emphasize rich media elements while orienting our refined design space towards VS for HNP. We analyze dimensions central for storytelling focusing on cultural heritage, while digging deeper into aspects relevant for HNP like specific types of text (testimonies, diaries, official documents) and person types (victims, survivors, persecutors). The key contribution of our study is the development of a design space uniquely tailored to HNP, which highlights critical elements and trends from existing storytelling projects, and comprehensively examines the unique challenges and opportunities within VS for HNP. Furthermore, we discuss future directions, enriching the evolving domain of VS by equipping heritage professionals and resear chers with practical strategies to craft compelling narratives that aim to engage contemporary audiences and to preserve the historical accuracy and ethical integrity of HNP.
