Publisher's Summary

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 best-seller 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 11-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)
