Here in Germany, many (all?) schools hold "project-days" once a school year. The children can choose between different offers. One of these projects in the Fräulein´s school for class one was the theme "Witches". The next three days she learns a lot about what happened to women who didn´t live according to the Norm, witch persecution etc.
But she will also craft things like a witches´ besom for example, a grimoire or this little hand-witch. See the red tongue?
