Historians call this event the Sarajevo Assassination. The assassination of Sarajevo was the immediate cause for the start of World War I. The First World War was one of the bloodiest events in human history where over 37 million people lost their lives.

The assassination took place near the then Schiller’s shop, the building that houses the Sarajevo Museum from 1878 to 1918.
