New Zealand remembers ANZACs

April 26, 2017

Thousands of New Zealanders have gathered at dawn parades around the country to attend ANZAC commemoration services.

The 25th April is a special day in New Zealand’s calendar. A day when we remember those that fought for our country.

The National Anzac commemorations took place at Pukeahu War Memorial Park in Wellington, while the country’s largest dawn service crowd was in Auckland, at the city’s War Memorial Museum.

In Gallipoli, Justice Minister Amy Adams paid tribute to New Zealand soldiers at the Gallipoli Dawn Service on Anzac Day.

The number of attendees this year was significantly lower than in previous years, after the Government warned people to stay away due to terrorist threats in Turkey.

Only around 750 people attended, compared to more than 12,000 in the 2015 centenary commemoration.
