Please read everything below before viewing the video……….

This video shows the winner of “Ukraine’s Got Talent”, Kseniya Simonova, 24, drawing a series of  pictures on an illuminated sand table showing how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War I The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to tears and she won the topprize of about £75,000.
She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated.

It is replaced by a woman’s face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman’s face appears.

She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.

This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is  looking out on the monument from within a house.

In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside, with his handspressed against the glass, saying goodbye. 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.
