Ahmed Zmiric: Biography


Project Title: DIE SKLAVEN DES 21.JAHRHUNDERT (21st Century Slaves)

Zmiric Ahmed was born in 1967 in Vienna. At age 7 he returned to Bosnia in order to go to school there. In his parents' house there was a warehouse with a library, in which he took as a child, his love of books.

He graduated and finished one military school in the former Yugoslavia.

Then came the war and his path led first to Germany and then returned to Bosnia, and in the end, 2004, in Vienna. In Vienna he begins to work in the hospitality industry, where he also is still active today. The love of books and writing is never extinguished, But through all this life story was hard to realize, especially the writing itself ... until now.
