The Shoes on the Danube Bank is a Memorial erected on April 16 2005, in Budapest, Hungary. Conceived by film director Can Togay, he created it on the east bank of the Danube River with sculptor Gyula Pauer [hu] to honour the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank

This is what I’m greeted with when I come up the stairs. I remember the kids not leaving me alone when I got back from work and thinking how I was looking forward to them doing their own thing and me having my time to myself like it used to be before children. Truth is I miss it already and the worst part is that it’s not going to change. I’m grateful that Florence’s door is still open though and definitely take it for granted less than I did with the other two. Enjoy it while it lasts people
