Vintage Video - 1914

Arrest of Gavrilo Princip following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, 28 June 1914 This page of the Vintage Video section of the website contains archive footage of personalities and events filmed during 1914, both before and after the war had opened.

Footage includes the arrival at Sarajevo town hall of the Austro-Hungarian heir Archduke Franz Ferdinand; shortly after he re-emerged he was assassinated, setting off a train of events that led to the onset of war a month later.

Each recording is titled along with a brief description.

All video files are in Adobe Flash format.   As is to be expected given the age of the material no audio accompanies the film footage.
