April 29, 2021 is the 28th anniversary of the death of the noble Graham Bamford
Graham Bamford poured gasoline on himself and set himself on fire on April 29, 1993, in front of the House of Commons in London. Bamford had no ties to Bosnia and Herzegovina. He decided on this act of dying in the most terrible torments in order to point out to the world the massacres, terrible crimes, killings, persecutions and humiliations that happened to the population of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
April 29, 2021 marks the 28th anniversary of the death of Graham Bamford, who took his own life due to the bloody war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bamford was terribly shaken by the images of aggression by the Serbian army and paramilitary units arriving from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Bamford saw his daughter in every child victim in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the testimonies of acquaintances and psychologists at the time. His condition worsened after footage of the April 16, 1993, massacre in Ahmići. At that time, 116 Bosniaks, including a three-month-old baby, were burned and brutally killed.
“The British army must not be an honor guard at a mass funeral. “Bosnian babies, children and women are waiting for politicians to give them what they can certainly give – military protection,” the 48-year-old Briton wrote in a farewell letter.
His human act of compassion for the suffering of Bosnian people, women and children goes beyond all the hypocritical notions of humanity delivered to us by an age without morals and shame. He died in terrible agony. When he saw a video of burned families in Ahmići on television. He tried to call on his government to protect the innocent people of Bosnia and Herzegovina and stop the aggression and genocide. He wrote in his farewell letter on April 29, 1993: “Enough of standing aside, enough of charred bodies in burned houses.” Today, his farewell words are even more relevant, more important “, reminded earlier from the Institute For Research of Genocide, Canada (IGC), led by Professor Emir Ramić.
The memory of Bamford exists today in an article in newspapers and web portals and the awarding of the City of Sarajevo for outstanding civic courage, solidarity, humanity and altruism.
