Abstract

This article follows the transformation of memories on Sarajevo assassination, reflected during the Assassination Centennial in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The author focuses mostly on touristic representations of Gavrilo Princip and new discourses framed in the Federation BH, in particular counter-discourses that challenge the simplified understanding of memorialisation practices in post-conflict societies as simple battles of antagonistic nationalised versions of the past.

***

V članku so analizirane transformacije spomina na sarajevski atentat ob stoletnici dogodka v Bosni in Hercegovini. Osredinjen je zlasti na turistične reprezentacije Gavrila Principa in nove diskurze v Federaciji Bosne in Hercegovine, med njimi tudi kontradiskurze, ki zavračajo poenostavljeno razumevanje spominjanja kot preprostega boja med antagonističnimi, nacionaliziranimi različicami preteklosti v post-konfliktnih družbah.

Keywords
