Shoes on the Danube Bank
On the banks of the Danube River in Budapest not far from the Hungarian Parliament building sit sixty pairs of oldfashioned shoes the type people wore in the 1940s. There are women shoes there are men shoes and there are children shoes. They sit at the edge of the water scattered and abandoned as though their owners had just stepped out of them and left them there.If you look more closely you see that the shoes are rusted made of iron and set into the concrete of the embankment. They are a memorial and a monument to the Hungarian Jews who in the winter of 19441945 were shot on the banks of the Danube River by the members of the Arrow Cross Party. Known as The Shoes on the Danube Promenade the memorial was conceptualized by film director Can Togay and was created by Togay together with the sculptor Gyula Pauer. It was installed on the Pest bank of the Danube River in Budapest in 2005. At three separate places on the memorial cast iron signs read in Hungarian English and Hebrew To the memory of victims shot into the Danube by Arrow Cross militiamen in 194445.
