Zlata's Diary (. ISBN 0-14-024205-8) is a non-fiction book by Zlata Filipović, who was a young girl living in Sarajevo while it was under siege. Zlata Filipovic was born on 3 December 1980. She lived in Sarajevo before the Bosnian war started. During the war, Zlata kept a diary from 1991 to 1993. Like Anne Frank, she also gave a name to her diary, Mimmy. Zlata and her family survived the war and escaped to Paris in 1993, where they stayed for a year. The family has settled down in Dublin, Ireland.
When Zlata's Diary was first published at the height of the Bosnian conflict, it became an international bestseller and was compared to The Diary of Anne Frank, both for the freshness of its voice and the grimness of the world it describes. It begins as the day-to-day record of the life of a typical eleven-year-old girl, preoccupied by piano lessons and birthday parties. But as war engulfs Sarajevo, Zlata Filipovic becomes a witness to food shortages and the deaths of friends and learns to wait out bombardments in a neighbor's cellar.
Zlata’s Diary is literally Zlata’s diary. Zlata lives in Sarajevo and starts keeping a diary in September 1991, not long before her 11th birthday. She excels in school, enjoys fashion magazines, and watches Murphy Brown on television. Six months later, she is recording the tragedies of war. Reading about war from a child’s perspective is an interesting experience. Zlata mentions politics several times, writing that politics has started meddling around. It has put an ‘S’ on Serbs, an ‘M’ on Musli Zlata’s Diary is literally Zlata’s diary

Zlata wrote her diary (whom she called Mimmy from) 1991 to 1993 during the Bosnian war. She starts the fifth grade in the beginning of 1991 and she reunites her friends and her family.
