“Very moving tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is an extremely moving tribute to a truly horrible event. The juxtaposition of the beautiful sites along the river on the Buda and this memorial makes it even more moving.

“A very moving experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is terrific memorial, but it is very sad. What happened to the Jewish people here is a human tragedy that should never be repeated. May God forgive us for our sins!

“how weird. When we understood what it was it was really sad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

this is such a novel way of acknowledging what happened to the Jews here. The variety of shoes is really sad, it shows how people from all walks of life were affected.

“A moving experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Acknowledges a dark aspect of the past. Just walk along the banks of the Danube away from the Chain Bridge and you will find it past the anchored river boats
