Shoes on the Danube

During WWII Jews in Budapest were brought to the edge of the Danube River. They were ordered to remove their shoes and were then shot and killed, falling into the water below.

‘Shoes on the Danube Promenade’ by Can Togay and Gyula Pauer was created on April 16, 2005, displaying 60 pairs of iron shoes that line the river bank, a poignant memorial to the victims. May their memories be a blessing.
