How about a memorial to remind people what happened and why it should never happen again?

I've always seen memorials as a bit patronizing and empty. Maybe something along the lines of the Washington DC Holocaust Museum would actually serve as a reminder, but when I hear "memorial" I think statue.

And when I think statue I think pigeon toilet.

If the politicians insist on throwing money at their white guilt, how about doing something useful with the money instead of building a pigeon toilet?
