  • Noemi, I found a comment of yours somewhere on a photo on the internet saying that some people tried to put their feet inside the shoes, probably not knowing their meaning. To me that had more meaning because there's that say that you cannot understand another person unless walking 1 mile in their shoes... So there, the poetry is there for them to sink in when they'll learn what that was there and why

  • Dear Noemic,

    This presentation is very touchy. It's very regrettable and sad. Remided Armenian genocide.

A parti szegély terméskövére erősített cipök mögött negyven méter hosszúságú, hetven centiméter magas kőpad húzódik . Az emlékhely három pontján öntöttvas táblákon magyarul, angolul és héberül olvasható a felirat : &quot; A nyilaskeresztes fegyveresek által Dunába lőtt áldozatok emlékére állíttatott 2005 . április 16-án &quot;.

  8. 10. <ul><li>Translation : “The composition entitled 'Shoes on the Danube Bank' gives remembrance to the people shot into the Danube during the time of the Arrow Cross terror. The sculptor created sixty pairs of period-appropriate shoes out of iron. The shoes are attached to the stone embankment, and behind them lies a 40 meter long, 70 cm high stone bench. At three points are cast iron signs, with the following text in Hungarian, English, and Hebrew: &quot;To the memory of the victims shot into the Danube by Arrow Cross militiamen in 1944-45. Erected 16 April 2005.&quot; (source: MTI, Saturday, April 16, 2005.) </li></ul>
  9. 13. This plaque stands on the bank of the Danube, where the Nazis shot thousands and thousands of Jews, tossing them into the river during the Holocaust.
  10. 16. The bank of the Danube river is very peaceful in the evening . As the sun is setting, it gently illuminates the backdrop of the shoe memorial. <ul><li>May ,2008 </li></ul>
