Today I visited the site where World War 1 started. Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated by an 18 year old schoolboy on the pictured street corner. Their assailant ran to the bridge in the picture, bit into a cyanide pill and jumped into the river from the top of the pictured bridge hoping to drown. He then vomited the pill, did not drown due to the very low water level and was promptly apprehended. This event sparked the largest and bloodiest conflict in recorded history up to that time.
