June 1914

Gavrilo Princip

The gun (model Browning 910) used on June 28th, 1914, to kill the archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria (1863-1914) during his visit to Sarajevo was wielded by a young radical nationalist. Gavrilo Princip (1894-1918) was a militant of Young Bosnia movement, a group supported by the serbian secret nationalistic society Black Hand. Untill today the real links between the terrorist group and the serbian secret service are still unknown. Princip’s act unleashed a conflict that quickly set in motion the diabolical mechanism of world war.
