Art in the defense of peace

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 II. Her talent is mesmeric to watch.

UNESCO seeks to build the defenses of peace in the minds of men, and if you wonder how the arts can contribute to that process, this is the answer.
