To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Armistice of the Korean War, a new exhibition at the Anzac Memorial honours the service and the sacrifice of Australian Korean War veterans, featuring the photographs and stories of 11 veterans.
Australia was the second country to decide to send troops to Korea, after the United States. A total of 17,164 Australian soldiers fought in the war. 1,216 were injured and 340 were killed.
This exhibition honours the service and sacrifice of Australian Korean War veterans and passes their legacy down to future generations. We remember not only the 11 veterans featured in the exhibition but also all 17,164 Korean War veterans who willingly risked their lives for the freedom of the Republic of Korea.
The exhibition is a project of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Sydney, in collaboration with the Anzac Memorial, Sydney, and features the photography of Tae Yun.
The exhibition is located in the Memorial’s Auditorium on Lower Ground level. The Memorial is open every day, 9am to 5pm. Please note that access to the exhibition is dependent on the Auditorium’s availability, so we encourage you to call the Memorial in advance on (02) 8262 2900.
Entry is free.
