Zlata Filipović born Sarajevo December 3, 1980. Kept diary of Bosnia War, 1991-93.


"Why is politics making us unhappy, separating us when we ourselves know who is good and who isn't? We mix the good, not with the bad. And among the good there are Serbs and Croats and Muslims, just as there are among the bad. I simply don't understand it. Of course, I'm 'young,' and politics are conducted by 'grown-ups.' But I think we 'young' would do it better. We certainly wouldn't have chosen war!" (photo UN Dialogue)
