Zlata's Diary by Zlata Filipovic
Book DescriptionWhen 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-today 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."

Books By Author Zlata Filipovic
Stolen Voices, Paperback (December 2006)
From the author of the international bestseller "Zlata's Diary" comes a haunting testament to how war's brutality affects the lives of young people, spanning from World War I to the war in Iraq that continues today.
Milosevic, Hardback (July 2004)
As Milosevic faces trial in The Hague for war crimes, this biography by one of Serbia's greatest writers presents a story of tragic, near-Shakespearean proportions. Stevanovic, with the knowledge of an insider, tells how a fractured country and a shattered society could raise such a man to such power.
Zlata's Diary, Paperback (January 1995)
Zlata Filipovic was given a diary shortly before her tenth birthday and began to write in it regularly. But the distant murmur of war draws closer to her Sarajevo home. Her father starts to wear military uniform and her friends begin to leave the city. The pathos and power of Zlata's diary comes from watching the destruction of a childhood.
