Statue of Marija Juric Zagorka in Tkalciceva street, Zagreb
Marija Jurić, pen-name Zagorka (March 2, 1873 – November 30, 1957) was a Croatian journalist and writer. She was the first female journalist and among the most read writers in Croatia.
None of her novels have been translated into English, but two are available in German: The Witch of Gric (1995) and Malleus Maleficarum (1972). The latter title is the same as that of the "textbook" published in 1488 about how to find the witches, though Zagorka's novel is a fictional tale, not a witch-hunting manual. 11 of her novels, published in Croatian, are found in the Library of Congress.
She died in Zagreb at the age of 84.
In a 2005 poll compiled by Vjesnik, a Zagreb daily newspaper, Zagorka came second in the list of most popular Croatian writers of all time.
