“A Magnificent Memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

At this site in 1944 the Arrow Cross fascists of Hungary took about twenty thousand Jews to the Danube and shot them. The sculptured empty shoes is to remind everyone of what happened there.

“Moving Memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Out of many memorials that I have seen, I believe this one is the most unique for the subject. It is so simple, yet so moving that one cannot help but stop and reflect.

“Beautiful reminder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Apparently this site is not so far from the Parliament, it's even shown in my guide map, and I found it unintentionally. It's a nice reminder of what happened in this river to the Jews. Make a short stop here if you are in the area!

“So moving, so detailed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

A simple idea: the shoes left behind of those shot and thrown into the Danube during the war. Yet the shoes reflect the individual, an echo of a person's life .. Cut short. Mesmerising and moving.
