Shoes on the Danube Promenade

this is one of the newer and yet one of the more remarkable sights in Budapest - The Shoes on the Danube Promenade

it is a memorial on the bank of the Danube River and it honours the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in the city during World War II... the Jews were ordered to remove their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away... their shoes were left behind on the bank and this is what this memorial represents...
