The UK’s National Holocaust Memorial and learning centre will stand in the shadow of Parliament, at the heart of our democracy, in Victoria Tower Gardens. This striking new structure will honour victims and survivors of Nazi persecution. It will also educate future generations about the dangers of prejudice and hatred, and serve as a powerful statement of our values as a nation.

Background information

In September 2016, the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation launched an international design competition, which sought to attract and identify the world’s best architectural talent to create an emotionally powerful and sensitively designed memorial and learning centre. Ninety-two teams expressed an interest in the project, with shortlist of 10 invited to submit concept designs, which are now on display at the V&A.

We are consulting on the shortlist with the public, those working in the field of Holocaust remembrance and education, and technical experts. This consultation will play a crucial role in informing the jury’s final decision on the memorial.

A summary of the feedback we receive will be fed into the jury. Note that we are not able to respond to individual submissions.
