Gubin (Serbian Cyrillic: Губин) is a village in the municipality of Livno, in western Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History[edit]

In June 1941, on the Orthodox Pentecost, Ustashe from Livno raided the village.[1] The Ustashe carried out atrocities in the region.[2] Several locals joined the 4th Krajina Brigade of the Yugoslav Partisans.[3] The village was completely destroyed by Croat forces during and after the Yugoslav wars, but organisations such as the United Methodist Church have raised funds to help rebuild the town.[citation needed] The local Serb population fled to Serbia in 1995 amid Operation Storm. A small number has since returned.

Demographics[edit]

According to the 1991 census, there were 366 inhabitants in the village, out of whom 361 were Serbs. According to preliminary results of the 2013 census, there are 107 inhabitants.
