English Translation:

God, full of mercy, Who dwells on high,
grant proper rest under the wings of the Divine Presence--
in the lofty levels
of the holy and pure ones,
who shine like the glory of the firmament--
for the soul of our brothers the Jewish people,
the holy and pure, who fell at the hands of murderers,
whose blood was spilled
in Auschwitz, in Majdanek, in Treblinka
and the other camps of destruction in Europe,
who were slain, burned, and slaughtered,
and who were buried alive with extreme cruelty
for the sanctification of the Divine Name.
For we, their sons, their daughters, their brothers, and their sisters,
will contribute to charity in remembrance of their souls.
May their resting place be in Paradise--
therefore may the Master of Mercy shelter them beneath His wings for eternity;
and may He bind their souls in the Bond of Life.
God is their inheritance,
and may they repose in peace in their resting place.
Now let us say-- Amen.
