“The last public execution in Bremen”
Review of Spitting Stone

Spitting Stone
Reviewed 20 January 2015

The stone in the cobbles of cathedral square is a reminder of the public execution of the infamous poisoner Gesche Gottfried.
The spitting stone allows locals to convey their disgust for the notorious poisoner to this day.
Between 1813 and 1828, Gesche Gottfried murdered a total of 15 people with arsenic. Her motives remain the subject of speculation. On 21 April 1831, she was executed in Domshof square – the last public execution in Bremen. The story of Gesche Gottfried has been turned into a number of books, and is also told in detail at the House of History in the Schnoor quarter.

Old place of execution. Ritch outside cathedral. Can only imagine what would have been going through the minds of those going to meet their maker.
