Feb 26, 2017 — VERY IMPORTANT: as of tomorrow 27 Feb. there will be the possibility of visiting an exhibition in Westminster Hall with all the competition schemes (see below). PLEASE TRY AND ATTEND AND LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS, OBJECTING LOUDLY AND CLEARLY ABOUT THE SITE FOR THE MEMORIAL AND LEARNING CENTRE. We need everybody involved in this competition to know many of us believe that the organisers need to find an alternative site for this project, whether in SW1, at the Imperial War Museum or further afield, but not in Victoria Tower Gardens.

More news this week: more publicity for our cause , as we were featured in The Times p 31 yesterday http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/jewish-peer-criticises-holocaust-memorial-kwh3jjhfn.

An exhibition of the shortlisted designs for a National Holocaust Memorial is on display in Westminster Hall for one week from Monday 27 February.

The new National Holocaust Memorial and accompanying education centre will stand in Victoria Tower Gardens in the shadow of Parliament. 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.

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

Consultation with the public, 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.

Access to the exhibition

The exhibition is open from Monday 27 February for one week (excluding Sunday) from 9am. Entrance is via the Cromwell Green entrance.

Closing times will vary depending on parliamentary business each day and will close at 5.30pm on non-sitting days (Friday 3 and Saturday 4 March). Details of parliamentary business are available on the UK Parliament home page.

Visitors will be subject to an airport style search and entry may be subject to delays and queues. Visitors are advised to avoid busy periods, notably between 3pm and 7pm on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
If in doubt, further information on entry arrangements can be obtained by calling Visitor Services on 020 7219 0516.
