  cro777: IM Vladimir Kozomara is a Bosnian chess legend.

Kozomara was the first chess master in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He won the Championship of Bosnia and Herzegovina (a former Yugoslav republic) 12 times (1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1965).

Vladimir's father Nikola Kozomara was also a passionate chess player. Nikola defeated Alexander Alekhine in a simul in Banjaluka, Bosnia 1931.

(Alekhine's simultaneous exhibition Banjaluka, Bosnia 1931).

May-31-14  Gejewe: In 1982 Dimitrije Bjelica was the editor in chief of a biography published by the "Sah Klub Bosna Serajevo" with the title "Tako se igrao Kozomara 1921-1975". With many photos, lots of text (that I am unable to read unfortunately), a tournament report and games.
