One Red Shoe


One red shoe, I don’t know who this shoe belongs to. I don’t know her name, her age, her weight, her size, nor do I know the colour of her hair.

One red shoe, its significance should not be underestimated for it is only one, just half of the pair it used to be, a sign of a life disrupted.

One red shoe. she who owned it might still be alive but she is probably dead. The minute she arrived in Auschwitz, someone else decided for her if she would die by gas or if she would be worked to death.

One red shoe. her shoes and her clothes were no longer hers. Even her name was taken from her, Her only identification was a number, tattooed on her arm. Unless she was sent to the ‘showers’ after arrival, because then even that number and tattoo wouldn’t matter.

One red shoe, just one of thousands and each of those shoes tells an unknown story.

One red shoe.


I am passionate about my site and I know you all like reading my blogs. I have been doing this at no cost and will continue to do so. All I ask is for a voluntary donation of $2, however if you are not in a position to do so I can fully understand, maybe next time then. Thank you. To donate click on the credit/debit card icon of the card you will use. If you want to donate more then $2 just add a higher number in the box left from the PayPal link. Many thanks.
