A powerful account of escaping from Ukraine

Sometimes books come out so fresh and urgent that they demand your immediate attention. Like Zlata’s Diary: A Child’s Life in Wartime Sarajevo, You Don’t Know What War Is by Yeva Skalietska chronicles the first 12 days of the war in Ukraine.

Consisting of diary entries, text, newspaper headlines, and photographs, it illustrates the terrible upheaval that the unprovoked Russian attack had on her life. Aimed at readers 11 years and older, the book offers an in-depth look at the conflict through the eyes of a child. Her diary begins like any other 12-year-old: with entries about her friends, her toys, and a birthday party devoted to bowling. But at dawn on February 24, 2022, Yeva’s life was changed forever when she awoke to the terrifying sounds of shelling. Her dear Kharkiv, with all its beautiful buildings and iconic architecture, was no longer safe.
