First of Two Hearings on Proposed Niskayuna Holocaust Memorial Held

The town of Niskayuna is once again taking up the issue of a Holocaust Memorial inside Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery along Troy-Schenectady Road.

The project has been in the works for more than a year, and a vote pushed back several times to give architects time to re-design it.

The project is spearheaded by Latham orthodontist Dr. Michael Lozman. He calls it an interfaith project, as the two acres of land where the memorial would stand has been donated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.

Many, but not all, of those on hand at Wednesday night's initial public session say they now support the memorial.

Another hearing is set for May 22nd at Niskayuna High School.

The town board could vote on it by the end of June.
