at the Criminal Museum
we visited the Criminal Museum of Rothemburg,
where we saw the instruments which
were used to torture people in the past.
In fact a lot of people were tortured or killed in the Middle
Ages and in the 16th and 17th centuries for behaviors
which were considered against religion or only unusual.
In the museum there were
arms and other instruments of torture.
there was a dark cape of the executioner : his work was to kill the
that we observed some pictures, medals, swords, chastity belts. The
picture showed scenes of torture. The swords were very long and their
blades were very sharp, they were used to cut people’s heads.
visit at the Criminal Museum was very interesting for everybody.
