Address
Neighbourhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

Carl Lutz was a Swiss diplomat working in Budapest during WW2 and is said to have played a key role in saving the life of over 10000 Jewish children with the provision of Swiss self conduct documents that enabled them to escape the country. The statue shows him hauling up a survivor

This memorial is easy to miss since is located in a small street by the wall. Pretty curious to see its meaning. Not much to see but a quick photo

We came upon this following our visit to the Dohany Street Synagogue. I initially wasn't sure what the display depicted, but it was unique.

Carl Lutz was a Swiss diplomat who saved perhaps sixty thousand lives during World War II by selflessly offering sanctuary to the persecuted Jews in the ghettos. He did this at great personal risk to himself. While many thousands of people hid Jews from the Nazis across Europe, perhaps none saved so many as Carl Lutz. His heroism deserves to be remembered and this statue is a partial memory of what he did.

We were wandering around the Jewish Quarter, and just happened to notice the plaque on the wall, explaining who Carl Lutz was: a somewhat unsung hero of WWII. There is a beautiful sculpture right next to it. I was so overwhelmed, I couldn't speak for a while. It will only take a few minutes to see, but I think this should be on everyone's itinerary.
