Three steel trees were unveiled outside New Street Station exactly 44 years after the attack on 21 November, 1974. The sculpture’s “leaves” bear the names of each of the 21 victims.
Campaign group Justice4the21 said the unveiling was a “multi-faith event” as the “bombs didn’t discriminate and neither do we.” Julie Hambleton, whose 18-year-old sister Maxine was killed in the bombings, said: “We are just overwhelmed with what has been produced for the memory of our loved ones.
“It is also part of a resolution to help us to heal the heart of Birmingham.” minute’s silence was held around the sculpture as it was officially unveiled at 20:17, the time the first bomb was detonated.
