  • 2004: Two days after her death, the mayor of Sarajevo announced the city would name a street after her, calling her an "author and a humanist who actively participated in the creation of the history of Sarajevo and Bosnia." An initiative by Sarajevo Mayor Muhidin Hamamdzic to pay tribute to Susan Sontag, who has died recently, by renaming Theatre Square outside the National Theatre Susan Sontag Theatre Square, was accepted on Thursday (27 January) at a session of the Sarajevo City Council. It took long 5 years for that to become official, since nationalist political parties ignored that promise. On March 30, 2009, it was officially announced that Theater Square in front of National Theater in Sarajevo will get the name of Susan Sontag. On January 13, 2010, the city of Sarajevo posted a plate with a new street name for Theater Square: Theater Square of Susan Sontag.
