Story of a Bosnian actor that brings tears: He is looking for his father's remains

Edin Hasanović, a Bosnian actor who escaped to Germany as a boy and lived there, asked for help in finding the remains of his father, who was killed in 1992 during the war in Bosnia, but his body has not yet been found.

Hasanović has an interesting life story that brings tears to the eyes. After escaping from Bosnia, he grew up in Germany, had an interest in acting, and the highlight of his career was the movie "All Quiet on the Western Front", which won four Oscars.

"There's nothing new. Everything as in the last 31 years. No body remains for so long. There is no grave. There is no peace. There is less and less hope. Something in me is still fighting against it being completely gone. Hope gives way to helpless despair.

I am tired. Why should I now get the call I've been waiting for all my life?" Edin began. Edin wonders if they are still looking for his father's body. He is worried about the various rumors circulating about the body being found and he doesn't know what to expect.

“Are they still looking for them? How should I know? Does anyone know anyone? They say from Bosnia that the people who work for the search organization simply don't want to remain unemployed and that's why they keep the bones.

Is that true? I have no idea what I could do about it. The time has come for me to try to find out through social medias whether they are looking for my father's remains at all and why it has been going on for decades," said Hasanović.

Edin Hasanović and his story

Hasanović recalled difficult moments that brought tears to his eyes. "My "babo"- that's how we call our father, a word I could never say - he couldn't even say goodbye to us. He carried me in his arms.

A Chetnik (a member of the radical Serbian army) gave him the choice of throwing the baby into the river or handing it over to his wife. "Take good care of him," he said. Then, the last look between mom and dad – not knowing it would be the last.

He was loaded onto a truck. My grandmother lost three sons on this day. She never heard anything from them again", he finished.
