Mehmed Spaho

Mehmed Spaho

Mehmed Spaho (born 13 March 1883 in Sarajevo – died 29 June 1939 in Belgrade) was a prominent and influential Bosniak political figure. He was the leader of the Yugoslav Muslim Organization.[1]

Spaho received his primary and secondary education in Sarajevo before he studied law in Vienna. After he got his diploma in Vienna, he quickly gained an important political role.

Spaho was one of the most important members of the Bosnian Muslim community at the time. He was among the first Bosniaks to have an important political influence while Bosnia and Herzegovina was part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.[2]
