In September 2016, the UK Government announced that designers and architects were being invited to enter an international design competition for a striking new national Memorial commemorating the Holocaust to be constructed in Victoria Tower Gardens.

The announcement made clear that competition entrants were also being invited to incorporate designs for a possible accompanying below-ground learning centre, which would be taken forward subject to technical, financial, planning or other constraints.
