Hotel Europa, top venue in Sarajevo, June 28, 2014. Hundredth anniversary of the coup that brought about the outbreak of the First World War. Someone will die today as well. The voices of diplomats calling for the nations reaching an understanding will not reach everyone. The hotel staff, unpaid for months, are planning a strike. Will they achieve what they expect? Do they strive only for outstanding wages? How much alike are Princip of the Hotel Europa and Gavrilo Princip from hundred years ago?
