Anzac, the Armenian Genocide and the Politics of Remembering

Armenian woman and child in deportations 1915 Armin T Wegner Collection

On air Friday 24 April 9.30am - or listen now. In this centenary year, ANZAC commemorations have reached a fever pitch. How much history is lost in the carnival of commemoration? 24 April 2015 marks another day of mourning. It is the centenary of an event that took place very close to Anzac cove: The Armenian genocide. The program explores how and why we remember the past, and what is forgotten along the way. Tune in as we uncover a piece of history that is rarely remembered when we speak about the Anzac legend, but that is an instrumental part of that story. Also this week, an Anarchist World This Week ANZAC Special along with other discussions on air.
