145), conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina with Serbian participants, showedthat perception of ingroup
responsibility for atrocities perpetrated against an outgroupled to greater feelings of guilt directly, and also indirectly through personal acceptanceof ingroup responsibility. In contrast, it led to greater feelings of shame directly andalso indirectly through a perception of threatened group image.
