Warnings: WWII-fic, dark topics (nothing explicit)
Summary: It is 1944, and Hungary stands on the banks of her beautiful Danube in the dead of night...with a gun pressed into her back. The gunmen is one of hers. The people dressed in rags, dragged from the ghetto to be murdered, are hers. She has no idea where she stands.
[This is based on a true story, and a picture of the memorial in Budapest is included.]

She stands here with the men, women, and children who are only half her people, snatched from the ghetto in the middle of the night like a perverted Pied Piper tale.
