The Shoes on the Danube Bank is a memorial dedicated to the victims shot into the Danube, by Arrow Cross Militiamen, the militia of the far right, Nazi modelled Arrow Cross Party, which was in power in Hungary from October 1944 until March 1945. Located on the east bank of the Danube River in Budapest, Hungary, the memorial was conceived by the film director Can Togay with sculptor Gyula Pauer and erected on April 16, 2005. The victims were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. The memorial represents their shoes left behind on the bank.
