Summary/Abstract: This work provides an overview of archival materials on the Second World War in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Kujović notes that although many documents were produced in Bosnia during the war, not all of them are located in the country. A large portion of the material (especially that dealing with the military sphere) can be found in archives in Belgrade and Zagreb. Unfortunately, sixty years since the end of the war, most of the wartime collections remain uncatalogued, and the largest collection – ZAVNOHBiH – is divided between two archives in Sarajevo – the State Archives of Bosnia-Herzegovina and the archives of the Historical Museum. These issues make it difficult for scholars to adequately research this important period.
