It is today!
27 June 2014 | by petarmaticSee all my reviews

I watched this film starting 10pm on the eve of June 28, 2014. Hundred years passed.

Some of my distant relatives were members of that horrible organization called The Black Hand a.k.a Unification or Death. They really believed that they are doing something important and faithful. It really turned out to be that way.

As my predecessors told me in long evening stories, that this film really depicts those events well. If you want to know what happened in Sarajevo that day, this is a film to watch.

If you ask me should of Princip killed Ferdinand I say NO! Bosnia would of been better of if it stayed in the union with Austria, rather that Yugoslavia was created! Mother of all mistakes! History is full of them!
