Virtuele reconstructie Scholtenhuis

by OVCG
Bronze

Virtual and historically correct reconstruction of the Scholtenhuis, the location of the German Sicherheitsdienst (= the nazi’s secret police) in Groningen during World War II. The creating team made a website that transmits burdened historical facts in a way that causes emotion and that yet remains fully integer. The site does justice to historical reality in all its broadness (facts, rooms, persons etc.) and combines this with a perfect application of the latest modern technologies but with maintenance of the ?look and feel? of that particular time in history. Within the rooms many additional original sources to a variety of subjects are accessible within their historical context: photo?s, newspapers, documents and interviews with eye-witnesses. All this together creates an accessible, easy-to-navigate and multi-medial searching engine that exposes the results immediately and threedimensionally. It is the first time ever that a real building that does not exist anymore has been virtually resurrected in a way as detailed and accurate as the Scholtenhuis.

Quote of a former prisoner (age: 95) of room 16 looking to the site for the first time: ?Yes yes, that is where I sat! Exactly! That?s just amazing??
