Tekst na vrhu spomenika samo ide na engleskom kako slijedi.

Lest the world forgets the denocide that befell Prijedor, with all her lost sons and daughters, all humankind suffers and is made incomplete.

Odlucili smo za dodatnu tablu dimenzije pola metra sa pola metra na sami spomenik u visini ociju sa tekstom,
Poslacu to u sljedecem mailu.

This memorial is dedicated to the 3,176 innocent victims of genocide killed in the city of Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina, during the war that engulfed the Balkans between 1991 and 1993.  Situated here in the great city of Chicago, this memorial shall serve as an instrument of hope and peace, reminding all who would look upon it of the tragedies of the past, and the importance in guarding against future atrocities. We dream of a world devoid of the pain suffered during those dark years, and hope that future generations do not repeat the same mistakes.  Mindful, we honor our fallen men, women and children, cruelly taken from this world and with unified voices proclaim a steady vigilance against those forces that seek to blur history.  With this common voice, both mournful and determined, we rise above the ashes of war and reverberate throughout the world, insistent that the past not be ignored or dismissed.  As an appeal to justice, and as an example for our descendants to draw strength and perspective from, we seek above all to be imbedded upon the hearts of all citizens of the world, so that each of us may live in brotherhood and peace.
