    100 years ago, it's in front of this bridge that Gavrilo Princip shot dead Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. On June 28th, 1914 this young Serb sparked the beginning of the first world war. Today, the multi-cultural city of Sarajevo is organising commemorations for the centenary of the war. An opportunity for a reconciliation between those who consider Gavrilo Princip a hero and those who see him as a criminal. But celebrations seem compromised. The Serbian authorities have decided to boycott the official ceremonies. As his counterpart in Belgrade, the Bosnian-serb president, Nebojša Radmanović, will leave Sarajevo on the 28th of June to pay tribute to Gavrilo Princip. At the Major's office, the Serbs' absence doesn't surprise the organiser of the official events, Mr Ibrahimovic, who already expected the boycott. In the streets of the Old town of Sarajevo, people seem confused. George finds it hard to explain the situation. A hundred years after the beginning of the war, opinions still differ on Gavrilo Princip. This anniversary is yet another missed opportunity for reconciliation. Report made in Sarajevo for the first world war centenary. Interviews with: Nebojša Radmanović, Serb president serbe of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Hajrudin Ibrahimović, organiser of the centenary at the city hall of Sarajevo Directed by : Laetitia Moréni, Paul Prescrott, Giovanni Vale.
