Walked a fair way to find this spot.
No signage, no historical write up.
Just ok.
This could be made into some more.
Not what we were expecting.

This is a heard rending reminder of the history of the Jewish side of the World War within Hungary & Budapest.

The shoes just seem to have been left there like it was yesterday.

This is a monument that needs more prominence than it has so that more people visit here.

Simple but oh so effective in its meaning.

In Budapest on our return trip to our ship our guide pointed out lines of many empty shoes of adults, babies,children and elderly left empty on the rivers edge. This was a concrete replica of a terrible history that took place along side this beautiful river. We were told the horrific story that during the comunist reign so many locals were herded to the river's edge - told to remove their valuables and place them in their shoes. These men, women and children of all ages were then shot and fell into the Danube. As we silently returned to our ship no one could hold back the tears at seeing this sad testament of man's inhumanity to man.

A very touching display of men's, women's and children's shoes on the banks of the Danube at a spot where Jews were killed and dumped into the river.
