This is an awesome video of Kseniya Simonova, a Ukrainian artist who just won “Ukraine’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. <via Huffington Post>
The war saw nearly one in four Ukrainians killed. A population of almost 42 million lost between 8 and 11 million people, depending on which estimate one references. Ukraine represented almost 20 percent of all the causalities suffered during WWII <source>. The Audience reaction is pretty incredible. It’s difficult to imagine this kind of performance finding its way onto “America’s Got Talent”.
