That the Avenger of Blood has remem- bered them; He has not forgotten the cry of the humble.

So that the last generation may know - sons yet to be born - they will mature and tell their own sons.
Psalms 78/6
MEMORIAL SCROLL

On the second day of the week, 7th of Sivan, Five Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty-One (5721) from the Creation of the World, fourteenth year of the State of Israel, and the twenty-first year of the destruction of our community   Skalat and its surrounding towns. 

We, the survivors of Skalat and its surrounding towns, in Israel have gathered at the Mountain of Zion in Jerusalem and built a memorial monument for the holy people of our town and its surrounding towns, who were murdered of the Nazis and their followers in the year  Five Thousand Seven Hundred (5700) - Five Thousand Seven Hundred and Three (5703), and were buried in a strange land. 

In this scroll we are memorializing the names of our relatives and our loved ones so they may have a name and memorial forever.

May this monument and this scroll be a memorial to the sacred and the pure whose thread of life was severed in such a horrifying and cruel way and may their souls be inscribed among the living.

And may this monument and this scroll be a sign of shame for the disgrace and trnal condmnation of these murderers who spilled the blood of innocents.

May their pure blood torture the souls of the murderers so they find no rest.

Our Father, Our King, before our eyes revenge for your servants spilled blood.  Pour your wrath upon them, and let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.  Pursue them with anger and destroy them with Gods name.

Organization of Survivors of Skalat 
and Its Surrounding Towns
In Israel and in Exile
