Shoes along the Danube

Carol Berlin is on the Temple Shalom trip to Central Europe. She shares her thoughts about what she observed along the Danube River in Budapest, Hungary.

Empty shoes along the Danube. A reminder of lives not lived. The bridal bouquet not used. The baby never to grow. Did people stare out of windows in the apartment building across the street and watch the Killing? What did they think?

Stones fill the shoes to say, we remember, we won’t forget. Never again.

But it keeps happening. Bear witness. Speak out.
