    1. In this absorbing memoir, the author talks about her vocation to be a writer and her struggles with her stepmother’s disapproval and through the horrors of the Serbian war. Her parents separated leaving her grandmother in loco parentis. She ran with her beloved Sasha through ‘the bullets hitting the ground like hailstones’. The crowded Sarajevo airport with people trying to get out was closed. There is a very moving account of the young Snjezana waiting in vain for her mother in her favour [...]

    2. Yugoslavia is in the Balkan area of Eastern Europe, and the city of Sarajevo was a seat of culture, founded in 1450. Sitting on trade rivers and providing a crossroads between cultures, the handsome city flourished in diversity and hosted a Winter Olympics. Snjezana - meaning Snow White in English - tells her story. She was born in Sarajevo and grew up under the Socialist rule of President Tito, who kept the populace from under the Soviet thumb. In March 1992 with Tito dead, Bosnia and Herzegovi [...]

    3. Snjezana Marinkovic’s powerful memoir Born in Sarajevo tells two stories: (1) how the beautiful and venerable European city is destroyed by war and ethnic cleansing and (2) how the author loses her home, sees her friends killed or lost to her, and has her family torn apart in the conflict. Integrating the two narratives is a difficult obstacle, one the author hasn’t completely overcome.Her personal story is compelling and heartbreaking. As a person of mixed heritage, she doesn’t belong wit [...]

    4. Well, today I couldn't take it anymore. At 83% (reading the Kindle version) I decided to quit this book. As some readers say, the author has a beautiful soul and writes nice words. But that doesn't make a good book. I bought it to support my eager study of Western Balkans, a region I will visit for 5 weeks after the Summer. I was expecting to learn something about the conflict in Bosnia, of course not from a historical perspective, but following a personal account. Only the author tells her own [...]

    5. Born In Sarajevo is a deeply personal and moving story of a young woman torn from her beloved Sarajevo, forced to flee when the war lands on her doorstep. The author shares her fears, her sadness, and the pain of her suffering, but there is also much hope in her story. She longs for peace- for herself, for her country, and for the world. The story is interspersed with poetry written by the author during these difficult times, which brings much depth to the story.If you are looking for a history [...]

    6. Powerful and compelling.Snjezana, which translates to "Snow White" in English, was born in Sarjevo and she shares her story. It's a powerful recollection of survival, when the only one she could rely on to save her, was herself. My favorite line, which dictates the story, is "There is no greater pain than to recall a time of happiness in one of sorrow." Her story is remarkable, and her survival is even greater. I especially was drawn to her reading the refugee booklet about the United States, as [...]

    7. This book was well written, with words from the soul about the conflict in Sarajevo in the 1990's. Marinkovic demeanstrates in a vivid way what it was like to be there, to live there at the time of the conflict. Such a different reality than America. --Sherry Gripman, Author of The Perfect Marriage

    8. Great book about what it is like to see your country break apart and go into war. It is a little skippy and sometimes you have to reread certain parts but overall great book and different view about the former Yugoslavia.
