Shoes on the Danube Bank is one of the most heart-breaking and touching memorials in Budapest. Danube as a delta is present in a lot of other cities, but in Budapest it has an even higher historic significance. It is a bitter reminder of the ordeal that the Jews had to go through during the World War II. It represents the Jews who were killed by the Arrow Cross Militiamen, by being asked to take their shoes off and directly shot so they could fall in the river and be carried away by the force of the water. This heart touching concept was the brain-child of Can Togay and Gyula Pauer. The memorial is built with utmost precision and is a sight worth watching. The recreation of about 60 shoes out of iron seems very real to the eyes and quickly takes you back in time.
