The Angel of Mostar Summary


The Angel of Mostar: One Woman's Fight to Rescue Children in Bosnia by Sally Becker

Sally Becker has helped to evacuate the sick and injured, Croat and Muslim alike, from the horrors of war in Bosnia. Returning from working as an extra on the BBC's ill-fated "Eldorado", she was shocked by the pictures of suffering in Bosnia. Her determination to do something about it led her to become an aid driver and then to organize her own evacuations of sick and wounded women and children, evacuations that have saved dozens if not hundreds of lives. There are many children alive today to testify to her courage and determination, causing the press to name her "The Angel of Mostar", yet despite the danger and hardship that she and the volunteers who helped her endured, her efforts have generated criticism from the UN and from other major aid agencies. This is her story. It describes the long nightmare of a country torn apart by war, and one person's attempt to make a difference.
