I was watching the new Hansel and Gretel movie titled “Gretel and Hansel”. I knew it was a old Bavarian story by the Brothers Grimm but never thought much of it. While watching the movie I noticed a number of Stars of David. Than I started thinking about the tales people used to tell their children about Jews and how we did witchcraft and ate children in the dark ages and medieval times. SO…I started to do some digging into the story. I found 1 page discussing the movie but that was it. But a it turns out. It’s a very dark story based on anti semitism but from the anti semites point of view.
