ANZAC day 2021

“To those Australians who fell on French soil. In memory of their sacrifice for the freedom of all peoples”. A la suite des commémorations nationales d’ANZAC day, j’ai assisté cet après-midi en tant qu’élu représentant de la communauté française en Australie à une cérémonie au French Australian Memorial de l’ambassade de France à Canberra. Émotion, respect, immense reconnaissance pour ces jeunes volontaires Australiens et Néo-Zélandais morts, blessés, terriblement meurtris sur les terres de France entre 1916 et 1918, si loin de leurs villages, de leurs fermes et de leurs proches. Lest We Forget

On this national day of remembrance we commemorate all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. We show respect to the contribution and suffering of all those who have served. As a French citizen and elected representative of the French community in Australia, I pay tribute to a lost generation of young Australians & New Zealanders. They gave their lives during World War I, crushed by a war they volunteered for, a world away from their families and their farms. Lest We Forget.
