On the sign:
באוגוסט 1944 הפליגה מנמל קונסטנצה ברומניה שיירה של שלוש אניות: "בולבול", "מורינה" ו"מפקורה", בדרכן לאיסטנבול. משם היו המעפילים אמורים להמשיך את דרכם לארץ-ישראל ברכבת. בלילה הופיע כלי שיט לא מזוהה, כנראה צוללת סובייטית שטעתה בזיהוי הספינה, ופתחה באש. ה"מפקורה" נפגעה וטבעה תוך זמן קצר. 315 מעפילים טבעו, חמישה ניצלו.

In August 1944, a convoy of three ships - "Bulbul", "Morina" and "Mafkura", sailed from the port of Constanța in Romania to Istanbul. The illegal immigrants were supposed to continue their journey to Eretz - Israel by train. An unidentificd vessel, probably a Soviet submarine, appeared at night and opened fire at the Mafkura. The ship was hit and sank shortly after. 315 Ma’apilim (illegal immigrants) drowned, five survived.
