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.
