The story of the Holocaust, as well as the story of New Haven’s memorial to it, were remembered Thursday at an event at New Haven’s City Hall.

Members of the community gathered to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the New Haven Holocaust Memorial and to celebrate “Memory and Legacy,” a new exhibit that honors Holocaust survivors and explains how the city’s memorial came to be. New Haven Mayor John DeStefano delivered the keynote speech at the event, and six Holocaust survivors placed roses to honor those who died.
