Hello and welcome to the details of Australia commemorates end of WW2 with message of unity and now with the details
MELBOURNE, Aug 15 — In socially distanced ceremonies across Australia that echoed a message of unity, politicians, veterans and ordinary people commemorated today the 75th anniversary of the day that brought the end of World War Two to the country.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and opposition leader Anthony Albanese laid wreaths at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, with a small group of veterans attending the national ceremony, subdued by the coronavirus pandemic.
“A country of seven million united and became one in a mighty national effort to defend human civilisation from the bullies who sought to destroy it,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
“Australia wasn’t alone. We stood with our allies and our friends, this was a global fight. All understood that if tyranny was not confronted together, eventually it would be confronted alone. True then, true today.”
The August 15 Victory in the Pacific Day commemorates Japan’s acceptance of the Allies’ demand to surrender, three months after Nazi Germany surrendered in Europe.
Almost one million Australians served in World War Two. Some 39,000 died and another 30,000 were taken prisoner, according to government data. About 12,000 of those serving in the war are still alive. — Reuters
