      Last year, the fiftieth anniversary of the International Competition for a
      'Memorial to the Victims of Fascism' at the Nazi death camp at
      Auschwitz-Birkenau passed unnoticed. Were it not for a small display in Room
      18 at Tate Britain (closes 12 June), it would have been forgotten entirely.
      And yet the competition tells us much about divergent attitudes to
      commemorative sculpture, as well as the distortion of memory for political
      ends. Questions about how to memorialise an event of such enormity as the
      Holocaust remain as relevant today as they were in Cold-War Europe.
