Ukrainian sand story is singularly special

30 Aug

Kseniya Simonova gets her message across by ‘performing’ amazing sand animation for Ukraine’s Got Talent.

Simonova recounts the German invasion and occupation of Ukraine in 1941, for which she won the 1,000,000 hryvnia prize (about $125,000 US).

Knowing that Germany conquered and occupied Ukraine between September 1941 and March helps to explain the audience’s tearful reactions to some of the images that seem obscure.

The Liveleak long version is worth the extra four minutes.
