Zlata Filipovic was born in 1980. From 1991 to 1993 she wrote in her diary of her experiences living during the war in Sarajevo. Zlata escaped in 1993 and went to St Andrews College in Dublin, and then to Oxford University where she graduated in 2001 with a degree in Human Sciences.From AudioFile:
Eleven-year-old Zlata Filipovic describes her life in Sarajevo as the clouds of war build, advance and consume her city. The diary is a powerful and moving document and has been released in print and audio simultaneously. Dorota Puzio, a native of Poland, reads with a soft Eastern European accent and the emotional intensity that the diary requires. Her clear pronunciation helps the listener with unfamiliar names. She captures the growth Zlata experiences as she leaves her protected childhood behind and begins to live the day-to-day hardship and deprivation of a city under siege. Zlata's Diary is a poignant plea for peace and a testament to the futility and waste of war. This sensitive production allows the reader to hear a young girl who cries out for peace. L.R.S.
