25 Jan 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.
