On April 6, city officials and numerous citizens marked one of the most important dates in Sarajevo's history.
In the 20th century, April 6 became a symbol of the resistance of its citizens to all forms of fascism.
It is the day when the city was bombed in 1941, and when World War II began in Sarajevo. Four years later, on April 6, the city was liberated and today celebrates the 70th anniversary of the victory over fascism.
Five decades later, on this day in 1992, after the breakup of Yugoslavia, Europe recognized Bosnia and Herzegovina as an independent country. That day the Yugoslav People's Army besieged Sarajevo in an attack which lasted 1425 days and was the longest siege of modern times.
Calling it a "fateful date," city mayor Ivo Komsic said that "fascism keeps returning to Sarajevo in different forms."
Flowers and wreaths were laid at the memorial to the soldiers fallen in the latest war and on the grave of the first president of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alija Izetbegovic.
"This day symbolizes the resistance to the fascism, aggression, and madness and it shows that the citizens have never accepted it and have always appreciated multi ethnicity in the country," said Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina Denis Zvizdic.
By focusing on the good and bad events that occurred on this date, the Prime Minister of Canton Sarajevo, Elmedin Konakovic, said that it should be "dignifying" and that this date should serve as a reminder to the people.
