Jasmin Dizdar's birth surname is Dizdarevic. His grandfather was killed during Nazis' "Seventh Enemy Offensive" in Bosnia in 1944. After the Second World War an orphanage changed his fathers original surname 'Dizdar' to 'Dizdarevic' as it was usual custom with Yugoslavian orphaned children. When Yugoslavia collapsed in early 1990s he changed Dizdarevic back to Dizdar. See more »
