StampNews.com 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.
