Remembering Armenia

Australians will pause on 25 April to remember the sacrifice of the ANZACs in the First World War.

One day before ANZAC Day, Armenians remember the martyrs of their nation, victims of a Genocide which took the lives of 1.5 million people in 1915. They also remember the ANZACs who saw the injustice suffered by victims of the Armenian Genocide and stopped to help them.
