Against the Crime of Genocide – new stamp issue by HayPost got to know that on April 23rd 2015, within the framework of the forum "Against the Crime of Genocide", HayPost officially cancelled and put into circulation a postage stamp dedicated to the "Centenary of the Armenian Genocide; Anatole France".

Anatole France (1890-1945) was a French poet, journalist, and novelist. He was born in Paris, and died in Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire.

He was a successful novelist, with several best-sellers. Ironic and skeptical, he was considered in his day the ideal French man of letters. He was a member of the Académie française, and won the 1921 Nobel Prize for Literature "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament".

His recognition by Armenia is conditioned by the fact that he was a publisher of "Pro Armenia" journal in Paris. He has shown a big contribution and humanitarian help to the survivors of the Armenian Genocide.
