the bombs start falling, there will be such destruction. People will
die and buildings will be destroyed. The history of the people could
be gone forever. When the people of Iraq learned that the war was
coming, they knew that Sadam's army would fight back any way they could.
And when Alia saw the troops on the roof of the library, she knew she must
be something she could do to save the books. The books the recorded
the history of Iraq and the heritage of her people. So Alia, the
head librarian at the central library in Basra, took it upon herself to
find a way to save the books. And when the bombs started to fall,
Alia was in the middle of it all.
