The shoes stretch along part of the Pest side of the Danube bank and commemorates the Jews who were lined up along the river, ordered to remove their shoes, and shot by fascist arrow cross militia men. There are no big notice boards, only small metal plaques at either end, but the memorial is no less moving for that. The metal casts are really lifelike, from men's shoes and workbooks, to women's heeled shoes and even some smaller ones for children, and it is all to easy to imagine the fate of the owners. Some flowers and notes left in the shoes show that this is is seen as a place of remembrance, and the people there when we went were silent and respectful.
