The new memorial will stand in the shadow of Parliament, at the heart of our democracy, in Victoria Tower Gardens. This 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.
