Nadija Mujagić is a Sarajevo-born writer who survived the brutal 1992-95 war in Yugoslavia and has lived in the United States since 1997. Nadija recently published her new book “Ten Thousand Shells and Counting: A Memoir”: a poignant account recalling her teenage years in war-torn Sarajevo.

This riveting and true story about war and survival contains an important antiwar message that deeply resonates today, especially given the all-too-common comparison between the breakup of Yugoslavia and contemporary U.S. and international politics. The reader will become familiar with how war destroys lives at multiple levels of the individual, the family, the neighborhood, the city, and the society when we passively accept or blithely ignore hatred as the status quo. Stories such as this memoir are how we build immunity against the scourge of ethnic and racial hatred, and develop the courage needed to shape the future towards peace and understanding.
