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

Final leg of the European tour. 4 countries and 6 cities in 6 days. Had a great time, everyone has got along (for the most part) and we’ve seen some great sites, eaten waffles, frites with mayonnaise, drank cheap wine, local beers, hot chocolates and coffees, seen great artwork and historic venues, played Uno on river banks and town squares. Will be nice to sleep in our own beds tonight though after a different bed each day since Thursday
