Shoes on the Danube Memorial 0.0 rating


The Shoes on the Danube are placed there in memory of the Jews who were killed by the Arrow Cross militiamen on the banks of the Danube in Budapest in 1944-'45 during World War II. They were ordered to remove their shoes, and then shot so that they fell into the river to be carried away by the currents. The memorial consists of 60 pairs of period shoes which form a powerful image of the persecution of the Jews.
