English term or phrase: commemorative stone
"A commemorative stone in honor of the victims"

He traducido como "placa conmemorativa en honor a las víctimas", pero hay alguna otra sugerencia en vez de "placa" que se acerque más a "stone"?

estela conmemorativa


Explanation:
Ya había dado un agree a "piedra conmemorativa", pero me he dado cuenta de que se nos ha olvidado citar "estela".

Me parece bastante elegante y se ve mucho en patrimonio, aunque se sigue utilizando para conmemoraciones contemporáneas:

agree  Richard Boulter: I think 'estela' is the best in this context; most specific and as Juan mentioned, the most-elegant. 'Losa' and 'lapida' are also excellent, but we don't have to be so literal as to use 'piedra' here.
