The society was organized in 1896.
The memorial was dedicated on 7 September 1947.

"This monument is in memory of the terrible destruction which was wrought
by the German and Ukraine mass-murderers, in our town of Zbaraz."

"Our brothers and sisters fell in the thousands--killed, cremated and asphyxiated,
in the gas and torture chambers of Belzec, Treblinka, Auschwitz etc."

"Our synagogues and holy places were wrecked and even the Jewish cemeteries were profaned by their using the memorial stones for street pavements."

"Let the Lord avenge their blood."

"Here lies soap, made by the German mass-murderers, from the bodies of our brethren.
May their souls rest in eternal peace."
