Transcript of Zlata's Diary

The Bosnian War
In April 1992, the government of the Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia. Over the next several years, Bosnian Serb forces, with the backing of the Serb-dominated Yugoslav army, targeted both Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) and Croatian civilians for atrocious crimes resulting in the deaths of some 100,000 people (80 percent Bosniak) by 1995. It was the worst act of genocide since the Nazi regime’s destruction of some 6 million European Jews during World War II.

Use context clues to figure out what word in bold means. These are sentences from Zlata's Diary, a story we will read today about the Bosnian war.

Write what you think it means on your paper.
It was the only way we could defend ourselves against all of this terrible shooting. We heard glass
shattering
on the street.

He said they (pictures) wouldn't come out because I had been
fiddling
with something on the camera.

The shooting seems to be dying down. I guess they've caused enough
misery

Now, you will get in groups and summarize one diary entry. Your summary needs to be short (2-3 sentences) because you will be walking around and reading 3 other summaries and you will only have 1 minute to read each summary!
