Tensions between the two nations have escalated rapidly, with both sides seemingly straining for creative ways to say “total annihilation.” Behind the bellicose rhetoric, however, lies a conflict with roots reaching all the way back to World War II.

This Esri Story Map takes a look at life in the two Koreas; how such a night-and-day difference came to be; and where the crisis could go from here.
