Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonder why there isn't any information about the meaning of the memorial on the site. I think it deserves more respect. Many people see it and don't understand.

A touching impressive memorial place by the Danube River shore. Don't miss it, but with all due respect for the victims of the holocaust: Not ever again!

This alone really makes you really think of what happened. So poignant. Brought tears to my eyes , especially the children's shoes.

I have seen and visited several what I call "dark history" museums and sites and I have never been more impacted by what I saw here. I literally had to sit down. I cannot nor would not want to understand the mind of those who would think of such a thing, nor those who would agree to carry them out. Extraordinarily sad.

Shoes that symbolize the suffering of Jews and other anti-Nazis in WW2. They are made of metal and many of them contain flowers left by tourists and residents.

Very heartbreaking story behind this monument to try to imagine this really happened to people because of their religious beliefs

These shoes represent people who were shot and fell into the Danube during World War 2. It really did make me feel quite sad and humbled to see this amazing piece of artwork depicting so many lives lost.

This is a place for reflection. Simple yet powerful. A very unique memorial for us as we’ve never seen anything like it before. A must see in Budapest.

Moving to see. Makes you stop and think of what people went through back in the day. Such a simple tribute to the lost people.
