Munday in Budapest 

60 shoes line up a silent witness. 

The Nazis took people from the ghetto in Budapest and marched them down to the River Danube. They then made them remove their shoes. Then they shot them and let their bodies float down the river.

A sobering sight on a beautiful sunny day.

Mans in humanity to man.

    I am always so moved when I see a photo of these shoes. May their memory be for a blessing

    I had the same feeling when I was there for shooting some photographs in that part of the city. I was breathless… http://www.mahdiaridjphotography.com/en/portfolio/budapest/
