On This Historic Spot
On Sunday, June 28, 1914
So read a memorial plaque, solemnly unveiled last week at ominous Serajevo. The letters of pure gold are deeply sunk in green marble. Pensively upon the stone broods the image of a frail young man. He proclaimed liberty by foully assassinating the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary. But the World War which followed did liberate Serajevo from Austrian rule. Therefore to his people a foul assassin is a Hero (TIME, Feb. 3).
