The truth about Anzac Day is that it is as much about denial as it is about
remembrance. It is a denial that functions for both sides of the original
conflict.

The two countries that have invested much energy into sustaining the
Gallipoli industry — Australia and Turkey — also have a genocidal past. Not
coincidentally, both countries have used the device of “Gallipoli, Inc” to
blot out shameful historical memories that they would rather not address.
