Welcome for Prime Minister’s announcement that he will introduce legislation to build Westminster Holocaust Memorial

The Board of Deputies has welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement that he will introduce legislation to build the Westminster Holocaust Memorial.

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement this afternoon. It is fitting that this commitment, which will be welcomed by survivors, the Jewish community, and other victims of the Nazis, comes just before Holocaust Memorial Day. Locating the Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in the heart of Westminster will serve as a powerful reminder of the impact of the Holocaust on the Jewish people and others, and will stand as a testament to the many British soldiers and civilians who liberated Europe, enabling thousands of survivors to rebuild their lives in the UK.”
