Retired Protestant minister and college religion instructor Hartmut Hegeler has written 17 books on Germany's witch trials. For the last few years he has been working to rehabilitate the so-called witches who were murdered centuries ago. "We owe it to the victims to finally acknowledge that they died innocent back then," he told SPIEGEL ONLINE. "But this is not just about the past -- it's a signal against the violence and marginalization of people that goes on today."
