NEW HAVEN – A group concerned about the upkeep of the Holocaust memorial in New Haven has founded an organization to take care of the memorial so that it can be restored to its original state.

The New Haven Memorial Tribute to the Six Million, located in Edgewood Park on Whalley Avenue was built in 1977 and was the first Holocaust memorial in the country to be built on municipal land.
