Myths and Mistakes. How a well known photograph and an infamous lunch break have shaped our memory of the Sarajevo assassination.

Dr Paul Miller is a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Birmingham (UK) and Associate Professor of History at McDaniel College (US). In this short talk, he contests the tension between history and memory, and explores how what we think we see shapes what we think about the past. He uses the notorious photograph of the arrest of Gavrilo Princip, the incident that is viewed as triggering the outbreak of World War One, as a starting point for this discussion.
