it was amazing
bookshelves: war, auto-biography

"This meeting, like many meetings afterward, didn't bring us any help. The UN and the International Red Cross were our greatest hopes for survival when we found out they were coming to the city. But our hopes were in vain. They never responded to our pleas for help. Helping ordinary people survive oppression during the war wasn't in their job description."--pgs. 154-155

This was an amazing story of what it was like to live through and survive during the war in Bosnia. I knew very little about the war and found this personal account very gripping. I found it to be a great story of personal triumph and a lesson about the Bosnian war at the same time. I highly recommend it.
