Europe's Largest Crucible - The Hunt for Jackl the Sorcerer

Hast du den Zauberer Jackl gekannt?

In the harsh times of the 17th century, loss of faith and bad living conditions are an ideal breeding ground for myths and stories of witchcraft. Jackl Koller and his mother Barbara band together with groups of beggar's children to survive poverty, famine and illness. Under torture, Barbara confesses that she and her son cast curses on farmers who refused to give them money. An arrest warrant is issued for her son Jackl, marking the beginning of the largest witch-hunt in Europe's history. This documentary explores what life must have been like in those times using dramatic re-enactments.
