Holocaust survivor shares painful memories with students  Click Here

This is the winner of Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent"  The winner "paints" in sand on a lighted sand box, the images are displayed on a projector for the audience.  The piece tells the story of Germany invading and occupying the Ukraine during WWII through the tale of two separated lovers.  It is one of the MOST amazing and emotional things I have seen.  I wish the words to the songs were in English.
