Did you know that the first victim of witch hunts had been Barbora Schmiedová, a wife of a shepherd from Jeseník? Her husband accused her of being a witch just when she was about to pass away. Barbora then underwent torture and on July 3rd, 1622, she was burned to death in the Polish city of Nysa.
You can meet the first alleged witch nearly face to face when visiting the Georgraphy Museum of Jeseník. Since 2012, there is a unique exposition showing the painful history of witch cases. You will go through fire and touch the shackles and torture tools and machines by yourself.
