The Trauma of War

Oh, my goodness. This is simply stunning. It is a sand painting performance and it depicts the experience of the Ukranians (or maybe Russians) during World War II.

I read the following in the comments:

In the second world war, 1 in 4 Ukrainians lost their lives and accounted for around 20% of all the deaths in the conflict. No other country suffered losses on that scale.

It portrays the German invasion, air raids and the devestation the country suffered in the war.

The Obelisk is the Ukranian memorial to their Unknown Soldier.

Denise Hunter sent me this. Thanks, Denise!
