Anzac Day Tours

Anzac Day Tours
From the 1960s, but especially in the 1970s and 1980s, Anzac Day became increasingly controversial in both Australia and New Zealand. The day was used by anti-Vietnam War protesters to agitate against that war and war in general, and ceremonies were later targeted by feminists, anti-nuclear campaigners, Maori activists and others. From about the late 1980s, however, there was an international resurgence of interest in World War I and its commemorations. Anzac Day attendances rose in Australia and New Zealand, with young people taking a particular interest. Anzac Day Tours Protests and controversy became much rarer. anzac day turkey

Anzac Day Tours
With the coming of the Second World War, Anzac Day became a day on which to commemorate the lives of Australians and New Zealanders lost in that war as well and in subsequent years. The meaning of the day has been further broadened to include those killed in all the military operations in which the countries have been involved.
Anzac Day Tours Anzac Day was first commemorated at the Australian War Memorial in 1942, but, due to government orders preventing large public gatherings in case of Japanese air attack, it was a small affair and was neither a march nor a memorial service. Anzac Day has been annually commemorated at the Australian War Memorial ever since. anzac tours turkey

“Uzak memleketin toprakları üstünde kanlarını döken kahramanlar; burada dost bir vatanın toprağındasınız. Huzur ve sükun içinde uyuyunuz. Sizler Mehmetçiklerle yan yana, koyun koyunasınız. Uzak diyarlardan evlatlarını harbe gönderen analar; göz yaşlarınızı dindiriniz, evlatlarınız bağrımızdadır. Huzur içindedirler ve huzur içinde rahat rahat uyuyacaklardır. Bu toprakta canlarını verdikten sonra artık bizim evlatlarımız olmuşlardır.”
