Like Sand Through the Hourglass

I don’t normally watch Ukraine’s Got Talent but this winning performance by Kseniya Simonova will blow your mind (and possibly make you cry). She used sand on a giant lightbox to dramatize the German invasion of Ukraine in World War II and though that sounds bizarre and abstract it’s actually a really amazing work of art that’s totally worth watching.

Nice to see new ways of thinking and learning about the Holocaust that aren’t just testimonials and pictures of concentration camps.

(The video is long, but watch at least until the 2:00 mark and you won’t be able to stop).
