Дом Принципа

The house where Gavrilo Princip lived in Sarajevo was destroyed during the First World War. After the war it became a museum in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia was conquered by Germany in 1941 and Sarajevo became part of fascist Croatia. The Croatian fascists destroyed the house again. The Yugoslav communists under the Tito established a communist Yugoslavia in 1944. The house of Gavrilo Princip became a museum again and there was another museum dedicated to him within the city of Sarajevo. During the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s, the house of Gavrilo Princip was destroyed a third time, and it has not been rebuilt yet. The Gavrilo Princip museum has been turned into a museum dedicated to archduke Ferdinand and the Habsburg monarchy.
