Gavrilo Princip and other conspirators of the Sarajevo Assassination on their way to the courthouse


The members of Young Bosnia did not leave much written material behind them before or after embarking on the fateful assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, making it harder for us to understand their motivations and reasoning. Princip: About Himself is a set of stenographic notes taken by Dr Martin Pappenheim, who was Gavrilo Princip's assigned psychiatrist during his imprisonment in Theresienstadt (today Terezín in Czechia) prison-fortress. The notes include two short writings that Dr Pappenheim was able to get Princip to write about himself after much persuasion.​In this edition, the translation of the two letters are included, as well as the German language original of the notes.
