The Great Patriotic War — In Sand

The Great Patriotic War — In Sand

If you haven’t seen this already, you should. The eight-minute video shows the winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent, 24-year-old Kseniya Simonova, dramatizing the effect of Operation Barbarossa on the Ukraine through a series of drawings on an illuminated sand table. It is absolutely mesmerizing — beautiful, disturbing, moving. As you will see, many members of the audience were in tears. So was I when I watched it.

Hat-Tip: My mom.

Yes, that was very impressive.

It did take me a second to recognize Apocalyptica’s version of “Nothing Else Matters” there at the end.
