Episode 2: Salem Witch Trials – Burn the Witch!
“Innocent have I come into prison… innocent have I been tortured… innocent must I die. For whoever comes into the witch prison must …be tortured until he invents something out of his head.”
These lines come from a letter written by a father to his daughter in 1628, as the witch craze raged across Europe. In this episode we cover this horrifying period of history and explore what caused so many executions.
