Photographer's Note

Lining the embankment of the Danube, is the Holocaust Memorial consisting of 50 pairs of bronze shoes. This commemorates the Jews who were killed when the Nazi's puppet government, the Arrow Cross, came to power in 1944. While many Jews were sent to concentration camps, the Arrow Cross simply massacred some of them right at the embankment, shooting them and letting their bodies fall into the Danube.
