Such a simple monument that looks so plain. And when you find out the story behind has such a powerful effect on you.

Given the current state of world affairs, a visit to this memorial to Jews who were shot in the back and dumped into the Danube during WWII is a sobering reminder of how capable "civilized" people are of horrendous acts.

A monument that it is very sad because of it's background story of the executions.
Can be seen just by walking by the river or even by cruise.

Beautiful tribute to those so cruelly murdered in the past. Such a pity that the shoes are covered in dead flowers and old candles, rusty cans etc. Actually ruins the whole thing and makes something beautiful look really ugly. I wish people would respect the jewish tradition of small stones or silent respect, rather than the rubbish tip approach!

The frosty cold and slight snow was a sobering reminder of why these shoes are here. The visual of young, old, sick and displaced people are stark reminders of the history of this beautiful place. Plus, gorgeous views up and down the Danube.
Unless part of another multi location organized visit, no paid tour required.
