Ukrainian Artist

In 2008, I was privileged to travel to Ukraine. While there I saw many beautiful churches and parks, and toured the Great Patriotic War Museum, which is an amazing place! The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population of 42 million. In some communities, the entire male population was eliminated.

A friend of mine brought this to my attention today. Please watch it and be sure you have your sound turned on.

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent." She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.
