Tour Description:

More than a hundred years have passed since those ill-fated shots on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, which provided the spark that ignited World War I. Many who endeavor to explain 1914 feel that the deep-lying reasons are really not easy to understand. Why was the war not restricted to those parties directly involved? Why did it escalate into a world war? What really was this strange power that got a grip on humankind in the autumn of 1914?

Very few people expected 1914 to be anything other than an ordinary year. But unlike the world at large, the Jehovah’s Witnesses expected 1914 to be a pivotal year long before it arrived. How did Bible prophecies help them to expect these developments?

Our virtual visit to Vienna (Austria) and Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) will help you to understand the history of the Balkans and the Habsburg Empire. Visit with us the two museums in Vienna and the authentic sites in Sarajevo.

Questions that will be answered on tour:

  • Why be interested in the year 1914?
  • Why did World War I turn the world upside down? Was it really just a colossal accident? How did statesmen and their military advisers grossly miscalculate risks and cause the loss of millions of lives?
  • How could two shots from a 19-year-old schoolboy set the whole world afire? How did it all happen? Why did that happen just then and just there?

Very interesting information I was not aware of. A lot of research went into this. I appreciate Achim Baier helping us see the connection with the Bible.

Looking back at a terrible event (World War I) with Bible in hand is a remarkable experience.

It is always good to know all the prophecies that happened before and will happen in the very near future, world scenes are now rapidly changing as the great tribulation will start soon, keep on fighting the fine fight until we lift our heads up in the sky and see salvation!!!
