Holocaust Memorial - Shoes on the Danube, Budapest: 11 reviews and 20 photos
The shoes found here on the waterfront are actual shoes worn by victims of the Arrow Cross and Nazis. During 1944 and 1945 Jews were routinely shot in back of the head and dumped into the Danube, mostly while chained to one another. The shoes are bronzed and you'll find baby shoes along with adult shoes. Some shoes are so worn out that you can almost see and feel the misery that these people went through. There are also two plaques commemorating the victims, one in English and the other in Hebrew.
Directions: All around the waterfront of Budapest, on the Pest side. My pictures were taken on the waterfront in front of the Parliament building.
