Shoes on the Danube Promenade - 18 Id. Antall József rkp. Budapest, Hungary

This haunting and sad attraction was created to remember the almost 20,000 Jews who were brutally shot and killed by the Szalasi on the banks of the River Danube. They were forced to remove their shoes, as those were a valuable commodity back then, before they were shot and fell into the icy water. The simple and moving monument was created in iron by sculptor Gyula Pauer and film director Can Togay and consists of 60 pairs of shoes.
