On the sign:
פרשת קלאדובו-שאבאץ
למעלה מאלף פליטים מגרמניה ואוסטריה, רובם אסירי מחנות ריכוז ששוחררו בתנאי שיעזבו את הרייך הגרמני ללא דיחוי, הפליגו בדצמבר 1939 על דוברות מווינה, בנהר הדנובה לים השחור במגמה לעלות שם על ספינת מעפילים. הם נעצרו בגבול הרומני בדרישה שימתינו לספינה שתגיע לנמל בים השחור. הספינה בוששה להגיע, הדנובה קפאה ומנעה את המשך ההפלגה. בינתיים פלשו הגרמנים ליוגוסלביה. בתוך זמן קצר נרצחו כל המעפילים, גברים, נשים וטף.

The Kladovo-Šabac Affair
More than a thousand refugees from Germany and Austria, most of whom were former prisoners, released from concentration camps on condition of leaving the territory of the German Reich immediately, sailed in December of 1939 on barges from Vienna, through the Danube river towards the Black Sea, in order to reach the ship of illegal immigrants. They were stopped at the Romanian border and required to wait for the ship that was supposed to arrive, though it didn’t. The Danube river froze and prevented it from sailing further. Meanwhile, the Germans invaded Yugoslavia. Within a short time, all illegal immigrants - men, women and children were killed.
