Serbian Gavrilo Princip - for some, freedom fighter that sacrificed his life. For some others, a terrorist
Let us not forget that independence of new Polish state after 1918 started with sacrifice of one Serbian student in Bosnia, Gavrilo Princip. Gavrilo assassinated Austro-Hungarian archduke Ferdinand, what initiated chain reaction of events that after WWI resulted in independence of Poland.
What i want to ask, was it worth? i mean, Gavrilo was sure that freedom of Slavs was above importance of his life. But, what about Poland? Was independence some `cursed` gift for the state that actually wasn`t ready for the independence or Poland absolutely needed to be independent? On the end, what Poland doing with her independence,... tend to be more independent or tend to endanger its own independence?
What we think?
