Zlata Filipovic was a twelve-year-old girl during the siege of Sarajevo in 1992. The teacher persuaded her to begin to write a diary based on Anne Frank’s diary. In the diary, from her perspective, she recorded the daily life during the war. The first edition was published already in 1993, which brought Zlata international recognition and enabled her and her family to evacuate from Sarajevo.
