Hello Mhairi,

For a map of these incidents, on OSM background to locate them, you
could use uMap, eg:

You could report the information related to incidents in the title and
text associated with the markers on the map. It is even possible to
include images, with the appropriate syntax (see the "?" help online)
and links to their online source, eg on Facebook.

uMaps can easily be included in websites.

Feel free to ask if you have any question.

Best wishes,

de nombreux juifs ont eu une attitude carrément hostile à l’égard du
régime nazi." Pierre Desproges
