mass grave

"In this mass grave rest the remains of 40 Jews from Medyka,
brutally murdered by the Nazi thugs in 1943.
May their memory be honored.
Exhumation of the remains was done in 1951 [or 1957?]
— thanks to the efforts of the
Social and Cultural Association of Jews,
Przemysl Chapter."

"Let whoever stands in front of this monument
bow their head and remember with respect
the martyrs who died for
their homeland and faith,
for dignity and freedom
for all mankind
— against the brutality of
genocidal racism."
