KILLED
BY THE NATZI
EXECUTIONERS
AUG. 15, 1941

(Dedicated 9 September 1951)
The Narevker Landsman societies did not produce a yizkor book, but this monument is considered one of the oldest Holocaust memorials in the New York area, having been erected in 1951. The Hebrew inscription "dee Nazi tal-yo-neem," is said to be somewhat rare.
