Get Mordgeschichten: Die blutige Seite des Harzes (German PDF

By Bernd Sternal

Mord und Totschlag gab es zu allen Zeiten der menschlichen Geschichte.
Als Harzer Heimatforscher habe ich recherchiert und zahlreiche dieser Gewaltverbrechen zusammengetragen. Ich habe für mein Buch einen Querschnitt dieser Taten über einen Zeitraum von etwa tausend Jahren ausgewählt. Es sind alles, speedy alles, wahre Geschichten. Bei den Mordgeschichten, die ausschließlich auf Sagen beruhen, ist der Wahrheitsgehalt natürlich strittig und zudem etwas dichterische Freiheit dabei. Jedoch habe ich auch ganze Gerichtsakten wiedergegeben, die einen Spiegel ihrer Zeit darstellen.
Viel Spaß additionally bei meinen blutigen Mordgeschichten und etwas Grusel, denn Tatsachenberichte sind eben doch anders als phantasievolle Krimis.
Die Mordgeschichten sind mit forty three schwarz-weiß Abbildungen illustriert, darunter zeitgenössische Darstellungen, Fotos, Zeichnungen und Zeitungsausschnitte.
