Monument erected by Kraków Jews. The plaque reads:

'Here, on this spot, in the years 1943-45, thousands of Jews brought here from Poland and Hungary were tortured, murdered and incinerated. We do not know their names, but let us replace them with one: the Jews. Here, in this place, one of the most severe crimes was committed. Human language knows no words to describe its atrocity, its unspeakable beasitaility, its ruthlessness or its cruelty. Let us replace them with one word: Nazism. The Jews who survived the pogrom pay homage to the memory of those murdered, whose final scream of despair is this Plaszów cemetery's silence.'
