Holocaust Proclamation signing in New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Never forget. Those words weighed on the minds of everyone Thursday at a Holocaust Proclamation signing in New Haven.

New Haven Mayor Toni Harp joined a Holocaust survivor, concentration camp liberator and World War II veterans at the Tower One Housing Complex. The event took on added significance with the recent threats against the Jewish community.
