To commemorate Anzac Day, the Korean Cultural Centre Australia presents a specially curated photo exhibition ‘REMEMBER: Australian and Greek Veterans in the Korean War’. Comprising of a diverse range in photographs and documents, this exhibition allows us to remember the valuable sacrifice of both Australian and Greek veterans during the Korean War.
Through the lens of Australian and Greek soldiers, the exhibition depicts the youth that fought vigorously for Korea’s freedom through the most arduous of conditions including the harsh weather extremes which they had not experienced before. Personal stories stemming from the wartime and peacetime along with reflections of the soldiers’ experiences are explored.
Moving further from the involvement of Australia, this exhibition also recognises the efforts of Greece as one of the 21 nations which fought under the UN flag in Korea. Many of the Greek veterans who served in the Korean War currently live in Australia, creating a solid connection between not only Korea and Greece but also Greece and Australia.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity to gain a better understanding between the three communities.
This exhibition has been developed in partnership between the Korean Cultural Centre Australia, the Consulate General of Korea in Sydney and the Consulate General of Greece in Sydney.
