Shot of the Day – Shoe Memorial on the Danube

Shoe Memorial

The Shoe Memorial in Budapest honors those executed on the banks of the Danube.  Both Jewish people and those accused of “Jewish Activities” were forced to strip naked and face the river.. They were then shot in the back so their bodies would fall into the river to be swept away ..
