The story about Maren Spilds, the woman who was convicted and burned. Movie by Moesgaard. The left side was shown on the door into Marens Kro and the right side was a more abstract version of “outside”


“It is no coincidence that it is Ribe that houses the newly opened and impressive HEX! Museum of Witch Hunt.

Here, the story of the Danish persecution of witchcraft is conveyed in an exemplary way – but remember the handkerchief. The stories go straight to the heart.” (Louise Nyhom Kallestrup, Politiken 1812 2020)
