An exhibition of the ten shortlisted designs for the UK’s new National Holocaust Memorial and education centre have been on display in Parliament’s Westminster Hall.
With cross-party support, the National Holocaust Memorial will stand in Victoria Tower Gardens in the shadow of Parliament. This structure will honour victims and survivors of Nazi persecution and will act as a national voice against hatred.
The memorial international design competition, run by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport and UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation, has shortlisted the very best designs to create an emotionally powerful and sensitively designed memorial.
Consultation with the public, Holocaust survivors, those working in the field of Holocaust education, as well as technical experts will play a crucial role in informing the final decision of the jury.
Matthew said: “The shortlisted designs are all remarkable examples of how we can create a sobering and enduring memorial to one of history’s most tragic events. I encourage all my constituents to view the designs and submit their views as part of the public consultation.”
