On the sign:
קרון רכבת אותנטי ששימש להובלת יהודים בתקופת השואה.
בשנים 1945-1941 שימשו כ 40,000 קרונות להובלת יהודים לגטאות ולמחנות, בתנאים קשים מנשוא של צפיפות, מחנק והשפלה. רובם של הנוסעים בקרונות לא שבו מעולם, חלקם נפטרו במהלך הנסיעה ואחרים - נרצחו בנקודות היעד.
בשנת 2020 הביא "בית העדות" את הקרון לתצוגה לאחר שהוצג כמה שנים במוזיאון תחבורה בגרמניה.
יהא הקרון אנדרטה חיה למיליונים ונדבך בהנחלת הזיכרון לדורות הבאים.

Translation of the text on the sign:
An authentic train car that was used to transport Jews during the Holocaust.
In the years 1941-1945, approximately 40,000 wagons were used to transport Jews to ghettos and camps, under unbearably difficult conditions of overcrowding, suffocation and humiliation. Most of the passengers in the train cars never returned, some died during the journey and others were murdered at the destination points.
In 2020, the "House of Testimony" brought the train car on display after it had been displayed for several years in a transport museum in Germany.
The car will be a living monument for millions and we will be involved in passing down the memory to future generations.
