ANZAC Day Commemoration in Athens

The Australian Embassy in Athens hosted the annual Anzac Day commemoration on Tuesday 25 April at 11:00 am at the Phaleron Commonwealth War Cemetery.

Anzac Day is an important occasion to honour the sacrifice and courage of the original Anzacs and of all our servicemen and women who have given their lives in times of war.

The commemoration was attended by the Minister for National Defence of the Hellenic Republic, the Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff and Ambassadors and Deputy Heads of Mission of 15 countries as well as students from both the St Lawrence College in Athens and the first junior High School of Voula.

The service was attended by more than 100 people, among them Australians and New Zealanders based in Greece and others who travelled from home to honour the courage and sacrifice of our servicemen and women.
