Shoes on the Promenade
Put Yourself In Their Shoes
The 60 pairs of iron shoes lining the Danube River are a part of the Shoes on the Promenade Holocaust Monument – dedicated to the Hungarian Jews killed and pushed in the Danube in 1944. The iron shoes represent those ordered to be left behind by the victims before they were killed and serve as a moving monument that gives new meaning to the saying "put yourself in his shoes."
