Grimm's Fairy Tales : Hansel and Gretel

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

... Hungry and tired, the children begin to eat the rooftop of the candy house, when the door opens and a "very old woman" emerges and lures the children inside, with the promise of soft beds and delicious food. They do this without knowing the fact that their hostess is a wicked witch who waylays children to cook and eat them.The next morning, the witch locks Hansel in an iron cage in the garden and forces Gretel into becoming a slave. The witch feeds Hansel regularly to fatten him up, but Hansel cleverly offers a bone he found in the cage (presumably a bone from the witch's previous captive) and the witch feels it, thinking it to be his finger. Due to her blindness, she is fooled into thinking Hansel is still too thin to eat. After weeks of this, the witch grows impatient and decides to eat Hansel, "be he fat or lean."...

...De kinderen eten van het huisje en horen dan een stem en een oude vrouw verschijnt in de deuropening. De oude vrouw neemt beide kinderen mee in haar huis en geeft ze melk en pannenkoeken. De kinderen gaan tevreden naar bed, maar de oude vrouw is eigenlijk een heks die het huis heeft gebouwd om kinderen te lokken. De heks wil Hans vetmesten en opeten en zet Grietje in als haar slaaf, zij krijgt enkel kreeftenschalen te eten. De heks heeft rode ogen en een slecht zicht en voelt elke dag aan de vingers van Hans om te voelen of hij al vet genoeg is. Hans steekt echter altijd een botje naar buiten en de heks is verbaasd dat hij zo mager blijft....

this picture of yours brings to my memory the good times of the wonderful stories of Grimm brothers, which modelate our childhood a bit better than all the war games on computers of these days.

thank you


have a nice sunday
