Amra Dautović came to the UK as a child refugee during the Bosnian War. Arriving to the country without speaking a word of English she now has a degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice, as well as a Masters degree in Forensic Psychology. Amra is now the Managing Director of the My Time Richmond Fellowship Division and has won several awards for her efforts and contribution to Mental Health work. Although she says her biggest achievement is her family, especially her two young children that she hopes to raise with knowledge and pride of their family heritage and origin. This is her story.
And I do what I can, as here, to warn against equivocations & denialism about these horrific crimes. I’m espec disturbed when I hear the preposterous calumny that Western Muslim populations - like Bosnia’s - are a conduit for jihadism. It’s utterly false. https://t.co/5qAT3vLQR1
The war was not explosion of intractable ancient hatreds. It was systematic campaign of genocidal aggression against a constitutional, multiethnic state, and western policy stood aside rather than prevented it. I wrote of this failure on 20th anniversary. https://t.co/yHTdv68X7L
