Zagvozd was the site of a 1945 torture and massacre of 18 friars and civilians, committed by Yugoslav Partisans. Their remains were discovered in 2005. DNA analysis in Split revealed the identities of three of the victims as Franciscan friars from the town of Široki Brijeg. In 2007, the 15 unidentified bodies were buried in Zagvozd while the identified friars were buried in their native Široki Brijeg.
