Translation:

“Forces of the First Krajina Brigade liberated this town for the first time on 24 October 1943. As a token of our appreciation  to the liberators of our town, the municipality council of  Association of war veterans made this plaque on 4 July 1957”

Luckily, so neighbors quickly came and saved what was possible to save of this plaque. The Municipality showed no interest in saving this valuable piece of history.
