Remembering Toronto's Fallen from World War II

Patrick Cain painstakingly mapped the homes listed as the next of kin addresses for 3,224 Toronto residents killed in World War II and marked each with a poppy. Please check out this poignant interactive tribute to Toronto's fallen by clicking here.

One at a time, the poppies are meaningful enough, a death on every corner - en masse they create a terrible bloody blot.

A repost from a year ago today.

Mapping it gives it a huge impact; the fact it is Toronto makes it all the more personally relevant
