Senta Memorial to the Victims in the Jewish cemetery Predgradski venac Street nn, between streets Novi Šor and Miksat Kalmana 1957 The monument to Jews of Senta-victims of fascism was unveiled on July 4, 1957, in the Jewish cemetery. Its erection was initiated by the Jewish community in Senta. The monument consists of a memorial wall and a black marble obelisk. Both feature Magen David on the top. The inscription on the obelisk in Hungarian reads: ''A zsidó üldöztetés gyászos éveiben 1941-1945 a fasiszták által elhurcolt és kiirtott vértanúk emlékére' – In the sad years of the Jewish persecution of 1941-1945, in commemoration of the martyrs deported and exterminated by the fascists. The memorial wall is covered with a canopy. The inscription on it is written in the arched strip made of pink marble with the Magen David in the center. The Magen David, like in Ada and Mol, features the letters ת ש ג ד ה ק - which denote the years 1942-3, 1943-4, 1944-5 - (תש'ג), (תש'ד), (תש'ה), while the letter 'ק' stands for 'לפרט קטן' - excluding thousands. The Magen David is incorporated into the following inscription in Hebrew that reads: ''שמות הקדושים מקהילתינו שנהרגו ונשרפו שנות 1942-45 על קד' ה'ש באושוויץ, אוקריינא, בהונגריא ובגרמניה- Names of the martyrs from our community who were killed and burned in the years 1942-45 for sanctification of God's Name in Auschwitz, Ukraine, Hungary, Germany, and: 'אבינו מלכנו נקום לעינינו נקמת דם עבדיך השפוך '- Our Father, our King avenge before our eyes, the blood of your servants that has been spilled (Psalm 79:10). In the center of the Magen David is inscribed: 'לזכרון עולם ק'ה סענטא יצ'ו' - For eternal memory of the community of Senta; while the abbreviation 'ישמריהו צורו ויחיהו '- יצ'ו – means: May this rock guard him and keep alive. T Below are the names of those who perished written in Yiddish orthography. At the very bottom is written in Hebrew: שמות הכתובים כאן אין לסמוך עליהן לגיטין וקידושין-The names written here are not to confirm or deny be trusted for Gittin (Talmudic tractate) and Kiddushin (the sanctification of a marriage) and the name of Yitzhak Moshe Bleier, Senta. The nature and content of the Hebrew inscription point to the orthodox character of the community. On the back side of the memorial wall is mounted a plaque from 1926-1927 with the inscription of gratitude and the names of the donors for the Yesodot HaTorah society in memory of their family members who passed. By this memorial, annual commemoration ceremonies on the anniversary of the deportation of Jews of Senta (26 April 1944) are organized by the Jewish community of Subotica.
