English inscription:


"To Jaworow, dear city,
whose gates no longer stand, whose folk were, with no pity, destroyed by brutal hand. 
Through her have swept the mobs of cursed might infernal, yet shall avenge her sobs, her hope in G-d eternal."

  Hebrew translation:

"In eternal remembrance to the beautiful town of Jaworow, whose gates were sunk into the earth that was set on fire and burned so many, and all its population was destroyed. Within it took place ravage and destruction which was the handiwork of the villains. The retribution of the blood of the children of hope will yet be demanded by G-d on High."
