Shoes on the Danube Promenade

Shoes on the Danube Promenade

They can barely be seen in this photograph, but those birds sitting at the edge of the promenade of the Danube aren't birds at all. They are shoes.

They are sixty pairs of bronze shoes placed as a reminder of the jews in World War II that were lined up along the edge of the river, ordered to take off their shoes, and shot.

The river would save the murderers any effort of having to dispose of the bodies. Fascism is nothing if not efficient.
