A few weeks later you hear that Gerlinde Altweib has been convicted of being a witch and will be executed. On the appointed day you show up with hundreds of other people. 

She arrives in a cart with several convicted witches. You are surprised to see people you know in the wagon:  the cook for the Grossherr family, the 12-year-old millerís daughter, a canon from the cathedral. They all look dreadful, in their rough woolen shifts and shaved heads, beaten and tortured bodies. 

The officials drag them out of the carts and stand them before the executioner.
