Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl has warned Westminster City Council that rejecting plans for the proposed Holocaust memorial next to Parliament would bring shame upon them.

Marie said: “At a time when antisemitic incidents are at an all-time high, rejecting this vital memorial to Holocaust victims would send entirely the wrong signal to society. Secretary of State Robert Jenrick is right to warn Westminster Council against a calamitous decision that would bring deep international shame on them. We urge anyone thinking of objecting to this project of huge significance to our country, our community and the victims of the evil, Nazi genocide to think again.“
