The Leper’s Plot: Conspiracy and hysteria in the 14th century — Jewish people being burned alive, a woodcut from the Nuremberg Chronicle published in 1493. As the violence against lepers continued, violence against the Jews resurfaced: the Jewish chronicler Samuel Usque wrote that five thousand Jews were burned due to rumors about Jews conspiring against Christian kingdoms.
“Mengele sent us to the right” — Two children in the medical station at Auschwitz concentration camp not long after the liberation of the hellish place. The Red Army freed more than 7,000 prisoners, who were mostly ill and dying.
The origin of the witch's broom — A young girl dressed as a witch suspended in mid-air on a broomstick. The earliest mention of night-flying women appears in the Cannon Episcopi, a possibly 8th century document.
