I have visited this amazing, yet touching memorial to the honor of the Jews killed by Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II, during 1944-1945. The victims, had to take their shoes off before being shot at the edge of the water for their bodies to be carried away.

The memorial represents their shoes left behind on the bank; these are 60 pairs, all attached to the stone embankment.

Without the story this would be just an ok picture, but with the history it is so much more. Thank you for sharing.

I agree. It was unlucky for when i got there, despite aiming for late afternoon light which would hover from the right hand side, the sun decided to hide into a huge cloud. was so annoying. trying to get the light through my flash.... byt then the off camera flash remote trigger had the battery dead too. it was just not meant to be ...

Fair comment. Thanks.

Excellent story and picture in spite of the lack of sun. You got what you had to get at that moment. I believe the gray tones give the solemnity it deserves.

It is a beautiful picture as I like the way the shoes fade in the background.
