|In memory of the victims shot into the Danube in 1944-45|
In the darkest period of our history the banks of the Danube turned into the site of mass killings. The members of the Arrow Cross Party (the Hungarian Nazis) shot hundreds of people and dropped them in the Danube. Their memory is preserved by sixty pairs of iron shoes on the Danube River bank, a work by Gyula Pauer.
