In the cradle of Berlin, the St. Nicholas district, we start our new tour about the witch hunt and its hidden history. For a little over two hours on foot, we will walk around the area to tell you how the witch hunts were mass murders that people still don't want to talk about today. We will even see one of the oldest cemeteries in the city.

Germany was not unified until the end of the 19th century and only forty years after the start of the Great War, but Berlin emerged in the 12th century as part of the Brandenburg Margraviate. But Berlin emerged in the 12th century as part of the Brandenburg margraviate. What happened in those intervening centuries?

When we think of the Middle Ages and Germany we can't help but think of the division of the Catholic Church, the Inquisition, and the witch hunts. Berlin keeps in its archives the history of some witches. But what did the witch hunts hide? Why were women persecuted? It was not only women but also anyone who broke away from the Christian norm.

With the invention of the printing press in 1440, knowledge, previously exclusive for use and enjoyment within the walls of churches and castles, became more accessible. The Protestant Reformation would come to an end barely two centuries later after Luther 1517 began his campaign against the Western Christian church.

All this, together with natural catastrophes, diseases, and wars made society look for culprits in anyone who went outside the established norm. Witches were merchants, healers, midwives, and prostitutes, but homosexual men and anyone who dared to break out of the narrow binary vision were also accused.
