Mary Schweidler, the Amber Witch

Wilhelm MEINHOLD (1797 - 1851), translated by Lucie DUFF-GORDON (1821 - 1869)

Wilhelm Meinhold, a Pomeranian priest working on the Island of Usedom, relates the story of Mary Schweidler, the Amber Witch. The author assures us that the story he has to tell is based on a manuscript he found in the parish church, originally written by a previous pastor named Abraham Schweidler. Schweidler chronicles how his own daughter Mary was trapped and accused of witchcraft. - Summary by Carolin
