You can argue all you want who has dibs on him, but "nothing to do with it" is well, there are lots of words what to call that.
So... what does he have to do with Serbia? Other than being printed on some of their currency. I know his parents were ethnic Serbs but still. It's a little weird. Not unprecedented. But weird. Overall I'd say Tesla has less to do with Serbia than Alexander the Great has to do with Skopje. But they still have statues of Alexander up all over the latter. So, whatever...
One more thing, Austria-Hungary was multiethnical country, for example like today USA, where many different ethnic groups live. Only difference is, in USA, everyone call themselves Americans, but that wasn't in AH empire, where they declare as their real ethnicity. I hope that I cleared it for you, as a person who lives in Serbia and is more familiar with the subject. :)
You didn't clear up anything for me and I wasn't unfamiliar with any of these subjects. But, thanks.
If violence broke out, I might be rooting for unity, but if the Proud Boys or the Boogaloo movement assembled militias of "true Americans" and went in to El Paso where they were slaughtering Mexican-Americans and dumping them into mass graves... I would be on the side of the Mexican-Americans in that situation.
Tesla was Serbian (a son of an Serbian orthodox priest).
