Description
The child's diary that awakened the conscience of the world When Zlata's Diary was first published at the height of the Bosnian conflict, it became an international bestseller and was compared to The Diary of Anne Frank , both for the freshness of its voice and the grimness of the world it describes. It begins as the day-to-day record of the life of a typical eleven-year-old girl, preoccupied by piano lessons and birthday parties. But as war engulfs Sarajevo, Zlata Filipovic becomes a witness to food shortages and the deaths of friends and learns to wait out bombardments in a neighbor's cellar. Yet throughout she remains courageous and observant. The result is a book that has the power to move and instruct readers a world away. "The only bright thing to come from [Sarajevo's] recent history." - USA Today "Conveys the bewilderment and horror of modern-day conflict...One of Zlata's gifts lies in throwing a human light on intolerable events." - San Francisco Chronicle

display_descriptionWritten with an innocence and desperation that will move readers of all ages, this international best-seller has touched the conscience of the world. Zlata's Diary stands out as a poignant reminder that war exacts a devastating toll on everyone-including children. Zlata Filipovic' began her diary just months before her 11th birthday in 1991. Peace still reigned in her hometown of Sarajevo, where she lived the carefree life of an innocent schoolgirl. But this life was suddenly shattered in 1992 when gunfire shook through the hills, and the streets of Sarajevo became the barbaric battlegrounds of the Bosnian war. As the onslaught of the war steadily invades her life, Zlata loses loved ones, endures months without decent food or running water, and spends weeks confined to her house as shells rain on the devastated city. Sustained by indomitable courage, she struggles to preserve the remains of her former existence. She learns to play the piano, celebrates special occasions with her closely-knit family-and faithfully records everything in this extraordinary diary.
