Inscription.

En memoria de los casi 15,000 negros haitianos y negros dominicanos que fueron brutalmente asesinados por órdenes del tirano Rafael Leonidas Trujillo durante los ultimos meses de 1937. Y en homenaje a los dominicanos valientes que resistieron este genocidio y colaboraron clandestinamente en el rescate y la protección de sus vecinos y que continuan contribuyendo a mejorar las relaciones entre República Dominicana y Haití. Y por el compromiso inquebrantable con la no repetición de este hecho ni de ninguna forma de violación de los derechos humanos entre estos dos pueblos.

Kréyol Ayisyen (Haitian Creole):
Pou n konmemore anviwon 15,000 Ayisyen nwa ak Dominiken nwa ki te asasinen nan yon fason brital anba yon lod diktatè Rafael Leonidas Trujillo pandan dènye mwa nan lane 1937. Epi pou n rann omaj a tout Dominiken vanyan ki te reziste a jenosid sa a, epi ki te kolabore pou te kache e pwoteje vwazen yo, jiskaprezan ki kontinye lite e kontribye pou amelyore relasyon ant Repiblik Dominikèn ak Ayiti. Avèk yon konpwomi djanm kote ni masak sa a ni okenn lot vyolasyon dwa moun ant 2 nasyon yo pa dwe janm fèt anko nan okenn fason.
