Death by Fire and the Hammer of the Witches

One of the darkest chapters of Bamberg's history is the persecution of witches. Hundreds of citizens fell victim to the persecution in 17th century.

"Innocent was I brought to prison, innocent was I martyred and innocent will I die!" This is the farewell letter by Johannes Junius, former mayor of Bamberg, to his daughter

In Bamberg's darkest days back in the 17th century, burning pyres, the "Hammer of the Witches" and distressing interrogations were the order of the day. The obsessive belief in witches stopped at no-one. Retrace the history of Bamberg's witch hunts.
