An exhibition of the shortlisted designs for a National Holocaust Memorial and education centre is on display in the Wales Millennium Centre from Friday 8 April until Friday 21 April 2017.

The new National Holocaust Memorial and accompanying education centre will stand in Victoria Tower Gardens in Westminster, London. This striking new structure will honour victims and survivors of Nazi persecution and will act as a national voice against hatred in our world today. People in Wales can have their say on the designs and how to make sure those who live further away from the memorial’s physical location in London can benefit from it.

The international design competition sought to harness the very best architectural talent to create an emotionally powerful and sensitively designed memorial. 92 design teams expressed an interest in the project, with a shortlist of 10 invited to submit concept designs on display as part of this exhibition.

Consultation with the public in Wales, those working in the field of Holocaust remembrance and education, as well as technical experts will play a crucial role in informing the final decision of the jury. Visitors are invited to give their views as part of the exhibition.

You can also view the 10 shortlisted designs and submit your feedback.
