You can read here about a new $82 million dollar Holocaust Memorial that will soon be going up in the U.K.

The following quote is from the news article:

Jack Diamond has long been considered one of Canada’s best architects and he’s designed award-winning landmarks around the world. But few projects have touched him as deeply as the one he’s working on now: Britain’s National Holocaust Memorial.

Mr. Diamond’s firm, Diamond Schmitt Architects Inc., is among the finalists for the £50-million (or $82-million) memorial and learning centre, which will be located in a park next to the Palace of Westminster, the home of Britain’s Parliament. The project has attracted some of the best architects and artists from around the world and Diamond Schmitt made the short list of 10 proposals from 96 submissions. Models of each of the finalists’ designs went on display in Westminster this month as part of a national public consultation process. The teams will each make a final pitch to a panel of 13 judges in May and a decision on the winner is expected this summer.

  1. I designed the first miniature Holocaust museum featuring an exhibition about the Ovitz family lilliput troupe who survived Auschwitz and immigrated to Israel after the war. It was in a box one could carry into a standard sized Holocaust museum for an arty museum inside a museum effect. The “curator” of the box cancelled my show, though. True story. You would had to have been there to get you mind around it. https://www.google.com/search?q=ovitz+family&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjquf-fuNDSAhXIxlQKHXZLCDAQ_AUIBygC&biw=1079&bih=584#imgrc=Uwi7sFbNQuz9mM:

    • who survived Auschwitz

      What a lousy “death camp” A-B was — so many survivors…

      You would had to have been there to get you mind around it.

      I’ll take your word for that.

  3. There are now more Holocaust memorials in the US than there are Starbucks. One of them even contains a gas station: Fill ‘er up – one stop for guilt AND gas!

    • It’s at least a real gas facility on a Holocaust site. 😉

      Honk if you love gross deceptions and Zionist hegemony. 😮

      I have never liked Starbucks. I only go there if a friend invites me to go and pays for a cup of plain coffee for me. 7-11 coffee is better and much cheaper.
