In #Budapest there are more than 30000 hand-picked small pebbles laying at the Margit-island. All those pebbles contain a number and an age, some a first name or nickname, some just "mom". Every pebble is for one person who died in #COVID in #Hungary. People started to put pebbles there last year, and soon thousands and thousands of new pebbles appeared, one by one, bordering the running strip around the little island.
In august 2021 the pebbles were so many that they were in danger from the large masses of people of the popular island, so the government of Budapest city and the people originally organised the memorial and their countless helpers have moved all the stones, a handful a time, into an inner park of the island, into a multiple spiralling line.
If you happen to be around, nice to know what these pebbles are. Lots and lots of stones.
