      Scott is right. It's "pamiatka z Czestochowy", meaning Memento from
      Czestochowa. Czestochowa is the site of Poland's most famous shrine,
      where the painting of the Black Madonna is kept.

      pamiatka means "memory" or "momento", or even "relic". I'm not sure
      of
      the other word, it looks like either an archaic form of Slovak or
      perhaps
      Polish. "Gzestoghowa" reminds me of Czestohowa, a town in Poland.

      "Momento from <something/where>"

      I'm clutching at straws, here.
