Birmingham Riots Memorial


Victoria Park Memorial was commissioned to commemorate the tragic deaths of Haroon Jahan, Shahzad Ali, and Abdul Musavir who were killed during the Birmingham Riots of 2011. The memorial was designed in conjunction with local primary schools who also assisted in the creation of tiles used within the mosaic work. It consists of three lamp posts, dedicated to each of the young men, along with a remembrance bench and dedication spiral on the floor. The memorial was unveiled in Smethwick’s Victoria Park on the 28th of September 2012. Please follow the links below for further articles related to the memorial;
