Ghetto wall, Budapest

There's a plaque not pictured here that outlines the significance: 
"In the rear portion of this courtyard stood the last remaining part of a wall surrounding the Budapest ghetto demarcated in November 1944.  Tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews -- mostly children, women and older men -- were crowded behind this wall.  Thousands of them did not survive to experience the liberation of the ghetto.  This memorial wall was build in their memory in 2010 replacing the original wall destroyed in 2006."
