A monument commemorates Macedonians who sacrificed their lives for the independence of Macedonia and Australia.

After World War Two, internal Greek quarrels led to the outbreak of the Greek Civil War between 1946 and 1949. Northern Greece (Macedonia, Thrace, Epirus) because of its mountainous terrain and common borders with the Communist Balkan countries, became the center of the conflict. The fighting was most destructive in western and central Macedonia, and a large number of citizens fled the war zone and moved to the big cities, forming a mass of refugees.
