Alma Catel was the star of Bill Carter's award-winning documentary Miss Sarajevo in 1995. When the band returned to the region, for the show in Zagreb last month, we tracked down Alma to see how life has changed for her... and for this part of Europe.
Alma's life during the siege of Sarajevo in the early 1990's was desperate. 'The situation is everyday worse and worse here... I have lost my friends, my flat is burned... the situation is really hard.' When U2 kept their promise to play in Sarajevo, on the PopMart Tour ib 1997, it was she says, 'the best concert ever' bringing together Bosnians and Serbs as never before.
Today, another twelve years on, Alma has a new life - and life in this part of Europe has been transformed. But can U2's concert in Zagreb scale the heights again - and what else is in store for Alma?
