The witch trials which took place in Bergheim between 1582 and 1683 are relatively unknown in Alsatian history.
The exhibits in the Witches’ House including pictures, engravings, video clips, archives and short texts (in French and German)encourage visitors to question the past and take a critical look at social exclusion and intolerance
