This is the first and only published first hand account on the Assassination in Sarajevo in 1914, by the district judge Leo Pfeffer. Young Pfeffer, who was at the time in his late 30s, was first to officially interview Gavrilo Princip, who shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife, Sophie, in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914, and other participants in the assassination.
The book, first published 24 years later, includes detailed descriptions of the process and the participants, as well as a rich selection of photoreproductions.
In 2014 a German film company ZDF made a film Das Attentat - Sarajevo 1914, in cooperation with the Austrian movie company, on the assassination in Sarajevo, with Leo Pfeffer as the leading character.
