THE SEEDS OF NEOPLANTA is the first book of Ksenija Djordjevic, a Serbian-born ex-teacher: "Writing liberates the author from the burden of history which each of us carries, like Atlas, on our shoulders." The history is of World War II and the years following in Novi Sad, the capital of Voyvodina, bread basket of Serbia and ex-Yugoslavia, known for its natural beauty and cultural tradition as the "Serbian Athens." The Neoplanta's "seeds" of diverse ethnic, religious, and ideological backgrounds have suffered repeated onslaughts by invaders: Roman, Turkish, Austro-Hungarian, German, and more.
