Nearly 20.000 Jews were brutally shot along the banks of the Danube River. The victims were forced to remove their shoes at gunpoint (shoes being a valuable commodity during World War II) and they were shot without mercy, falling over the edge to be washed away by the freezing waters.
Shoes on the Danube Promenade is a haunting tribute to this horrific time in history. Installed along the bank of the the river, the monument consists of 60 pairs of 1940s-style shoes, true to life in size and detail, sculpted out of iron.

A slightly different approach to the decorations we see for this festive season.
Enjoy your Sunday people! 😁
