Dragan Andric

Dragan Andric, born in 1956 in Konjic, died in 2004 in Sarajevo, professor of security.

  • Conscious of the risks to which he exposed himself, he revealed his civil courage when on the Konjic radio he sang live a song of solidarity he wrote to his fellow citizens who were being shelled from the hills nearby on the very first days of the war in 1992:
    "No matter what you are to me: friend, godfather or brother, I will not go to war against you."
  • Conscious of the risks to which he exposed himself in spring 1992 he organized and led the rescue of dozens of civilians who had fled their homes and were lost amongst the cliffs of eastern Herzegovina.
  • After the war, conscious of the risks to which he exposed himself and firm in the conviction that the time had come when, as Martin Luther King put it "one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right”, he stood up to the authorities on issues of professional ethics in a conflict which in the end cost him his life.
