letöltés

Unfortunately, years ago, the Australian Embassy closed in Budapest/Hungary. Earlier… last time the Australian Ambassador to Hungary Mr. John Griffin really took care of the Aussies in Hungary, beside the “get together” afternoons and other occasions connected to Australia. Since then for many here in Budapest there is “white sheet” sadly. On ANZAC DAY he invited international ambassadors stationed in Budapest and in addition the VIP guests participating in the Hungarian state administration. Also invited those who were once Aussies and are in some degree connected with Australia.

On ANZAC DAY just as every country has a day that commemorates those who fight and die to protect their freedom, their traditions, and their homes. For Australia and New Zealand, there’s ANZAC DAY, a moment of remembrance for all those who have served their country with distinction, especially those who never made it home. No matter where in the world we live, the fallen soldiers of nations everywhere deserve respect and admiration.

ANZAC is a unique name, an acronym for the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps who were the troops which fought in the historical Battle of Gallipoli. ANZAC DAY is observed every year on April 25 to mark the national day of remembrance in New Zealand and Australia. Anzac Day is a day to commemorate the members of the armed forces who fought on the Gallipoli Peninsula  during World War 1. 1915. The commemoration only became more important as the years wore on and World War II came to pass, leading to the death of more soldiers all over the world. These aren’t the only wars these fantastic men and women have fought, they also fight for the rights of women, gay rights, and more, initially inspired by the mistreatment of civilian women by soldiers in other cultures.

ANZAC – today marks 107 years since Australian and New Zealand troops landed on Turkish shores, and is recognized as a major national holiday in both countries. Thousands lost their lives during the 1915 Gallipoli campaign, including 44,000 men from France and the British Empire, 8,500 Australians and 2,779 New Zealand. Both New Zealand and Australia hold this day in high regard and celebrate it with all due solemnity every year.
