#KU_WWI Mini Reenactment: #SafetyFirst

Ever wonder who was responsible for security in Sarajevo when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated on June 28, 2014? Who was in charge and how much did they know about the plot beforehand? Was the success of the assassination simply gross negligence on the part of Bosnian authorities? Or was there a bigger conspiracy afoot? Starting at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, 21 May 2014, the #KU_WWI Twitter Project will feature a mini-reenactment between Governor of Bosnia Oskar Potiorek (@GovPotiorek1914) and Sarajevo Police Commissioner (@CommishGerde). Find out how much they knew, and what they did or didn’t do to provide security for Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his entourage.

The #KU_WWI Mini Reenactment: #SafetyFirst will begin at noon and will tweet out every 5 minutes. The tweets will be in English, German and Bosnian — translated by students from KU class BCRS 208 Intermediate Bosnian-Serbo-Croatian and the German Department.  Followers will be able to watch the reenactment via the hashtags #KU_WWI and #SafetyFirst.
