One of the most poignant and best know memorial to the Holocaust is a sculpture in Budapest, Hungary, entitled Shoes on the Danube Bank. That’s what it is; brass shoes, a memorial to Jews forced to take off their shoes and line up along the river’s edge in the closing months of the war by the local fascist Arrow Cross militia before being shot, their bodies falling into the river below and being washed away.

And look what the ever so sensitive Extinction Rebellion rabble want us to do as part of their upcoming social-distancing compliant protests.

Someone’s moral compass is seriously askew.
