From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Suggested Holocaust Memorial, London
Suggested place for it to be in Victoria Tower Gardens

The UK Holocaust Memorial is a suggested memorial and learning centre. It is planned to remember the people who died in the Holocaust. This includes Jews, Roma, LGBT, and disabled people.[1]

In July 2021, planning permission was allowed for the Holocaust memorial. The memorial is planned to be in Victoria Tower Gardens. Victoria Tower Gardens is a Royal Park next to the Houses of Parliament. The suggestion for it to be built there is controversial.[2][3]
