1. It must bother Serbs that the only “Serbian” noble prize winner is a Croat from Bosnia.

    Its an inferiority complex mixed with jealousy, exemplified by the constant stream of Croats they try to claim as Serbs and constantly needing to one up their neighbors. I suppose we should take it as a compliment :)

  2. Ivo Andric is a Croat from Bosnia who lived in Zagreb for a chunk of his life. The previous poster is right, he only moved to Belgrade because that was the only option for most non Serbs in a Serbian dominated Yugoslavia to gain some success. He won the noble prize in 1961 but had to move to Belgrade many years earlier.

    He never called himself a Serb but a Yugoslav and was only a Serbian on paper as he lived in Belgrade.

    It must bother Serbs that the only “Serbian” noble prize winner is a Croat from Bosnia.

    Ivo Andric told foreign dignitaries, officials and in media interviews, which are in the archives, that he considered himself a Serb. He was a member of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, not Croatian, he lived in Belgrade all his life, not Zagreb, and is buried in the new cemetery in Belgrade, not Zagreb. Why would'nt he say he is a Serb? even your national anthem was written by a Serb LOL.
    If you had a modicum of intelligence, which you don’t, you would know that the Nobel Prize is worth over $1 million today, but would be of same value in the 1960s plus his made a lot of money from his books so your BS story “about the handsomely no need for nothing money, dancing girls etc” is just that pure Croatian BS.
    Just curious who in their right mind would take any note of a moron like you on the finer points of Serbian culture?

  5. Thank you little sj for saying some half baked truths about Ivo. He didn't declare him self a Serb but a "Yugo" what ever that means. He was getting up in age and the commy's offered a sweet heart deals. If you declare your self a Yugo. We will reward you handsomely no need for nothing money, dancing girls etc. It's ok Ivo put one over you like Tito did now you Serbs worship humble Croatians as usual. Make me a good offer to Lenard muah mite consider it Serbs yap. I will go on tours espousing the less known finer points of Serb "culture".

  6. Ivo Andric was born into a Croat family in Bosnia and he was well educated who served as an Ambassador in the old Kingdom of Yugoslavia. He lived in Belgrade and declared himself to be a Serb. In fact during the Nobel Prize for Literature ceremony his selection of music was March on the River Drina.
    For those that dont know, that was a very brave choice since Tito would have imprisoned anyone else played that music except Andric. So if a great man such Ivo Andric declares himself to be a Serb I can only add its an honor. I hope Lenard has not taken his medication yet and can agree to my comment.
