Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87107 – WEBWIRE

An incredibly well-written testimony to a dark period of human history!

“Shoes Along the Danube: Based on a True Story” (SBPRA; 2011) by Dr. T. Zane Reeves is based on true events that occurred in Hungary, which involves Julius Rézler, a Hungarian Gentile and academic, and Agnes Földes, a Jewish woman born to a secular middle-class family.
The book, which cover is taken from the Shoes on the Danube Bank, is one of Hungary’s most loving memorials, combines political and military history, human drama, and character journey that will draw readers into the story. “Shoes Along the Danube” explores how World War II and subsequent political transition in Hungary affected both Gentiles and Jews, individuals and families, as shown by the experiences of Rézler and Földes.
Dr. Reeves’s book tells the family and personal lives of Rézler and Földes, his future wife, through the 1944 siege of Budapest, the Holocaust, and the post-war communist struggle. The book also mentions at length the rise of Francis Deák (Rézler’s half-brother), the epic struggle between Raoul Wallenburg and Adolf Eichmann, Rézler’s marriage to a communist and their eventual divorce, the Hungarian Jews’ shrugging off the anti-Semitism that was taking place in Germany and Austria and their dilemma of converting to Christianity to spare themselves from persecution, the Korean War, and the Red Scare in America.
“Shoes Along the Danube” does more than just walk readers through the history of Hungary; it provides readers with a captivating human story amidst the ravages of war.
