zikaron or zekher


Explanation:
zikaRON
זכרון
(zayin-kaf-resh-vav-nun)

is the word for 'memory', sometimes also 'remembrance'.

e.g.
Day of Remembrance = Yom ha-zikaron


But 'remembrance' is also 'Zekher'
זכר
(zayin-kaf-resh)

hence
In remembrance of = le-ZEkher
(lamed-zayin-kaf-resh)
לזכר


Remembrance in the sense of 'memento' is also
mazKEret
(mem-zayin-kaf-resh-tav)
מזכרת
