Olivia Marks-Woldman, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust commented on the government's announcement that an international design competition has been launched for a national Holocaust memorial in London:

'We’re delighted that the plans to develop the national Holocaust Memorial are moving forward, with its important location in Victoria Tower Gardens, which was announced on Holocaust Memorial Day.  This will be an exciting opportunity to create a memorial of lasting significance to Britain and to honour the memories of so many. Hundreds of thousands of British people across the UK choose to commemorate the past in their own communities on Holocaust Memorial Day; this physical memorial in such a symbolic site, will provide a focus for national commemoration.'
