In Memoriam

"This monument bears testimony to the unparalleled horrors committed by the fiendish Nazis
and their cohorts during the years 1939 to 1945 in destroying one thousand
and eight hundred sainted martyrs of our hometown Kolbuszowa who were
destroyed, murdered, slaughtered, drowned, burned and buried alive.
The God of the  spirits of all flesh will remember their souls.
May the God of compassion, the father of the orphan, the judge of the widow, give sweet repose beneath his divine wings to the souls of our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and relatives.
May their righteousness stand before G-d in eternal life .
Through their merit may the homeless of Israel return to their promised land. Amen."

Hebrew:
"This monument is witness to the terrifying destruction
the handiwork of the wildly wicked and the satanic brutality
of the Nazis and  those who helped them."

A version of the tradition memorial prayer "El Molay Rachamim":
"O G-d, full of compassion, grant  perfect rest--
to all members of their families who were martyred."

"May the dispersed of Israel be returned to their borders."
