Oct. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- “In 1944 everything changed when the Germans occupy Hungary for the purpose of exterminating its Jews. Reeves recounts the experiences of Holocaust victims and survivors, Righteous Gentiles who save Jews, as well as a dramatic ending in which a husband and wife are forced to choose between their vows and freedom.” – S. A. Colman, relative of the Földes, Sydney, Australia

Shoes Along the Danube by T. Zane Reeves refers to the memorial of cast iron shoes that honor Hungarian Holocaust victims. Based on a true story, this powerful new book follows the lives of two extended Hungarian families, the Rézlers and the Földes, one gentile and the other Jewish, through three decades.

The story begins in pre-World War II Budapest, as increasing fascism and anti-Semitism lead Hungary to become an ally of Germany. In 1944, Germany invades Hungary to exterminate Europe’s last remaining group of Jews at the infamous Auschwitz death camp. Revisit those times, as the story builds through the siege of Budapest, the Russian occupation of Hungary, and separation by exile.

“Shoes Along the Danube is a most fitting allegory for all those that left their lives behind. Highly recommended.” – Bryan Dawson, Executive Chairman, American Hungarian Federation
