Welcome to sarajevo true story
Natashas Story by Michael NicholsonNews correspondent Michael Nicholson went to Sarajevo to report on the horrors of the Bosnian War, but ended up smuggling one little girl away from the carnage.
Natasha’s Story is the heart-wrenching account of how the TV reporter risked everything to bring a nine-year-old orphan home with him, and gave her a new life 1,000 miles from her native land.
The true story, which went on to become the award-winning film Welcome to Sarajevo, is both an indictment of the horror and futility of the Bosnian War and a tribute to one girl’s courage.
Brought up to date with brand-new material and recent photographs, Natasha’s Story is released as an ebook for the first time to mark the 20-year anniversary of her rescue from Sarajevo – an event that made headlines around the world.

Welcome to Sarajevo
Directed by Michael Winterbottom. Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce. In "Welcome to Sarajevo," out on video this week, British director Michael Winterbottom puts us in those correspondents' shoes and delivers a compelling but jumbled film that examines the line between journalistic detachment and passion. Set in Sarajevo in , "Welcome" is based on a true story by Michael Nicholson, a veteran British journalist who smuggled a child out of Bosnia and adopted her. British actor Stephen Dillane, who's also in Henry Jaglom's "Deja Vu," plays the Nicholson character and gives a tender yet restrained performance that lingers long after the film is over.
Unlike more exotic and elliptical films that have tried to depict the chaos of war in the former Yugoslavia, such as ''Before the Rain'' and ''Underground,'' Michael Winterbottom's ''Welcome to Sarajevo'' tackles its subject head on. Set in and based on a memoir by an English journalist, Michael Nicholson, ''Welcome to Sarajevo'' plunges directly into pandemonium. Peril and jitters are everywhere as Mr. Winterbottom presents a gonzo guided tour of life under fire. Yet this film, for all its apparent immediacy, winds up less affecting than a more poetic or roundabout approach might be.
